New digital portal to strengthen safeguarding guidance for charities

The Government launched a new online portal on 22nd January that will strengthen its support to charities handling safeguarding concerns or allegations.

The portal, based on Gov.uk, offers a step by step guide to help charities correctly manage their concerns, identify the right people to contact if needed and access helpful resources and advice.

Following a combined £1.2 million DCMS and National Lottery Community Fund investment the portal will be promoted by six organisations across England. They have been appointed to champion the importance of good safeguarding and locally available sources of advice and support.
