AN A-Z OF SAFEGUARDING - WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND IS YOUR CHARITY COMPLIANT?

 

Wednesday 28 November 2018

16:45 – 18:30

The Hatton, 51-53 Hatton Gardens, Clerkenwell, London, EC1N 8HN

The Charity Commission has made safeguarding a key focus. The Commission's much expanded vision on safeguarding underlines a duty to look after not just the young and vulnerable but to protect staff, beneficiaries and the general public. What does this idea of safeguarding now mean for the new responsibilities of trustees and senior staff?

James Sinclair Taylor and Carla Whalen of Russell-Cooke Solicitors charity and social business team will share their experiences and recommendations, with a focus on:

  • the Charity Commissions guidance on expanding safeguarding obligations and expectations
  • the implications for charities working in different sectors and with varying beneficiary groups
  • the practical steps to ensure compliance
  • dealing with potential risks and tricky issues that might arise
