Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
Community First Yorkshire are working with the ACRE Network to promote good safeguarding practice to village and community halls throughout England. We want to make sure that the voluntary management committees that run halls and community buildings in Yorkshire have the knowledge and confidence to provide a safe environment for all.
The aim is to improve the awareness of the importance of safeguarding, provide advice and examples of best practice to ensure management committees fully understand their responsibilities and current legislation around safeguarding, and have appropriate and proportionate policies and procedures in place.
We have put together information, template policies and procedures, useful safeguarding links and training information all in one place for you here.
