Resources and Downloads 

 

1.   FREE Safeguarding Voice Toolkit now available to help you keep people safe in your organisation

 

The Safeguarding Voice group has learnt that some organisations could benefit from some extra guidance should a situation arise where a member or volunteer abuses another (this member/volunteer can also be an adult at risk). To help and support organisations the Safeguarding Voice group has developed a new Toolkit 'Keeping People Safe in your organisation' which focusses on keeping everyone safe, including the person who has abused.

 

The aim of this Toolkit is to help organisations prevent abuse from happening. It can be used as a tool to note the ways in which organisations already keep people safe and help them think about the additional things they need to put in place to provide a safer environment for everyone.

 

The Toolkit is available to download from this link: https://www.bradford.gov.uk/media/3159/keeping-people-safe-in-your-organisation-toolkit.docx  and organisations can download, print and adapt to suit their own requirements.

 

 

2.  Safeguarding Adults Quick Guide
