Safeguarding Guidance for Charitable Organisations working with Children; and with Vulnerable Persons (Adults)
The Charities Regulator has produced separate guidance for charities whose activities include working with:
- Vulnerable persons (adults): Reference to vulnerable adults includes the elderly, those who are sick, and those who are disabled
The purpose of these guidance notes are to provide a broad overview of safeguarding principles, key legislative requirements and relevant national guidance, policies and procedures relating to the protection and welfare of children and vulnerable persons (adults). This guidance also identifies resources available from other agencies to ensure that safeguards are in place that adequately protect children and vulnerable persons (adults).
This will assist organisations wishing to apply for registration in the Register of Charities and registered charities seeking to meet the standards set out in the Governance Code.
