The safeguarding training fund – what you need to know
Recently the minister for Civil Society Mims Davies announced an investment of £1.2m by the government and the National Lottery Community Fund to help all charities with safeguarding support and help them improve their knowledge of safeguarding requirements.
NCVO was named as the organisation that will lead the delivery of phase 1 of the Safeguarding Training Fund.
We are doing this in partnership with 13 other organisations, which have come together as the ‘Safer Social Sector Partnership’ to share their expertise and experience, and to ensure that charities of all types and sizes become safer organisations for everyone.
We decided to take on this work because there can be no higher priority for the sector than safeguarding the well-being and upholding the dignity of everyone we come into contact with.
