Safeguarding Handbook

Our Safeguarding Handbook is an essential guide for individuals and voluntary organisations working with children and young people, and is full of practical advice, useful resources and details of support services.

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.

Our Guidance on Safeguarding Children and Young People Handbook has been written in partnership with the Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board, and covers a wide range of topics. 

The latest handbook is our biggest and most comprehensive yet, covering everything from Legislative and Guidance Framework Supplement and Sample Policies, through to Forms and lots of other helpful and informative documents. 

Together, these documents provide up to date and essential information for workers, volunteers, management committees and trustees in voluntary and community sector organisations.

You can download your copy of the handbook and supplements below.
