Review and development of policies and procedures

A charity engaged my services to conduct a review of their safeguarding policies and procedures.

Meetings took place, which enabled me to get to know the client, and understand the nature of their work. With this knowledge I was able to draft policies and procedures which fitted the diverse and sensitive work of the charity. The policies were written in a clear and practical way to enable all those working with the charity from managers to volunteers, and service users, to have clear guidance on recognising and responding to safeguarding children issues.

The client also engaged me to design and deliver a training session on safeguarding children issues; introduce the new policies and procedures; and ensure that all staff were clear about their safeguarding responsibilities and how to act if they had a concern about a child or vulnerable adult.
