Any organisation working with children and young people is responsible for taking safeguarding seriously and ensuring that individuals in its care are safe and free from harm.

Young Solutions Worcestershire helps the voluntary sector deliver safeguarding best practice.

Resources for voluntary organisations:

Our Guidance on Safeguarding Children and Young People Handbook has been written in partnership with the Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board. Now in its fourth edition, with 141 pages of guidance plus Legislative and Guidance Framework Supplement and Sample Policies, Forms and Other Documents Supplement, it provides essential and up to date information for workers, volunteers, management committees and trustees in voluntary and community sector organisations.

View or download your copy of the handbook – including information, legislative framework, and sample policies and procedures – or contact us to purchase a hard copy, available to non-members for £20.

We offer Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks for staff and volunteers and a DBS newsletter. Find out more on our DBS page.

Our safeguarding training is designed to improve staff and volunteers’ safeguarding knowledge and skills, and many organisations find our expert training invaluable.

Further information about safeguarding can be found at the Safeguarding Worcestershire website.

Young Solutions has really helped our organisation with writing and implementing safeguarding policies and procedures, and has offered us friendly advice, practical help and support on a number of occasions.
