Sound Systems

Keeping It Safe is a long-running resource developed by the National Council for Voluntary Youth Services (NCVYS) launched in 2003. It is designed to help organisations that work with young people to do all they can to ensure safe working practice.

Over the past few years Young Solutions has supported more than a dozen organisations pursuing the Keeping It Safe scheme and has gained the Sound Systems safeguarding accreditation. Sound Systems is a nationally recognised kite mark awarded to youth organisations with policies and procedures that meet the Sound Systems standards.

To become Sound Systems accredited you need to demonstrate and produce evidence that your organisation has a range of policies in place. Keeping It Safe requires that you undertake a robust self- and peer-assessment process that challenges whether the ‘Keeping It Safe’ standards are: communicated; effective; embedded within and across your organisation; monitored; evaluated and young people focused.

We can provide organisations with trained mentors to advise on necessary policies and procedures and assist organisations in submitting evidence in order to gain the Sound Systems accreditation.

Accreditation lasts for two years, after which organisations must re-apply.
