Any organisation working with children and young people is responsible for taking safeguarding seriously. We help the voluntary sector in delivering safeguarding best practice, enabling them to ensure individuals in their care are safe and free from harm.

A key part of our work within the voluntary sector focuses on safeguarding and we support organisations through a variety of means, including our safeguarding training, offering DBS checks for staff and volunteers and sharing best practice through our Safeguarding Handbook.


If you have concerns about the safety or well-being of a child or young person, it is vital you act now. Please follow our guide on how to voice your concerns and report an issue.

Safeguarding Handbook 

We have created an essential guide for individuals and voluntary organisations working with children and young people, full of practical advice, useful resources and details of support services. 

The handbook has been written in partnership with the Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board and includes Legislative and Guidance Framework Supplement and Sample Policies, Forms and lots of other helpful and informative documents. 

A valuable resource for workers, volunteers, management committees and trustees in voluntary and community sector organisations.

Please contact us if you would like to purchase a hard copy.

Available to non-members for a cost of £20. 

DBS Checks 

As a registered umbrella body for the Disclosure and Barring Service, we offer responsive and prompt DBS checks to the voluntary youth sector. Our service helps to provide organisations with complete confidence that their staff and volunteers are appropriately checked.

Safeguarding Training

We have a team of expert trainers who are highly experienced in delivering safeguarding training, helping to equip your staff and volunteers with practical knowledge on how to prevent harm to children and young people. 

Our training not only protects and promotes the welfare of children and young people, but it also enhances the confidence of trustees, staff, volunteers, parents/carers and the wider community.
