New Digital Portal to Strengthen Safeguarding Guidance for Charities

The Government has recently launched a new online portal to strengthen support to charities handling safeguarding concerns or allegations. Every organisation that delivers charitable activities has a responsibility to safeguard people from harm or abuse, whether they are staff members, volunteers, or other people who come into contact with the charity through its work.

The portal can be found here:

Online Portal

It offers a step by step guide to help charities in England correctly manage their concerns and handle the reporting of safeguarding allegations about the behaviour or actions of a person in their charity. It also helps identify the right people to contact if needed and access helpful resources and advice. The portal will be promoted by six organisations across England to champion the importance of good safeguarding and locally available sources of advice and support.
