This set of recommended standards and accompanying guidance will help non-statutory organisations in the UK that work with children and young people up to the age of 18 to put clear safeguarding arrangements in place.
They are aimed at voluntary, community and faith organisations and groups. They may also be helpful for others working with children and young people such as social enterprises, not-for-profit organisations and small enterprises.
The standards help organisations take responsibility for keeping children and young people safe, minimise risk and comply with legislation and national guidance. They offer a realistic and practical approach, providing useful templates, examples and links to further information.
