Safeguarding children and vulnerable adults in charities - trustee duties explained
- Monday, 30 April 2012
The Charity Commission, the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales, has today published its Strategy for dealing with safeguarding children and vulnerable adults' issues in charities.
The strategy sets out trustees' safeguarding responsibilities in their charity and this includes taking steps to protect children and vulnerable adults from harm, it reminds trustees what they should do to prevent problems from arising in the first place and how they should respond to allegations and incidents of abuse when they do arise in their charities.
This follows from the publication of the Commission's new Risk Framework and Risk Application Guidance. These documents sets out the Commission's general regulatory approach, how it assesses risk, and identifies three regulatory areas requiring a clear strategic response; one of which is safeguarding in charities.
