If you don’t yet have a safeguarding policy or safeguarding procedures in place, we recommend you have a look at the NSPCC’s very well presented resources.

Use the NSPCC’s free online self-assessment tools to review and improve your organisation's safeguarding arrangements. Two self-assessments are available - one for an education setting and one for voluntary / community groups.

Draft your new safeguarding policy by using How to write safeguarding policies and procedures by the NSPCC.

The resources page also incorporates sources for training through e-learning. Many organisations use this for their staff and volunteers as it is a short and inexpensive way of developing safeguarding understanding and policies.

You can find Wandsworth Council’s Safeguarding Children Partnership here and information on Safeguarding and Adult Abuse here.
