Safeguarding Audit for the Voluntary Sector

The contribution of voluntary sector to safeguard and ensure the welfare of children and young people is extremely important. Both the North Yorkshire and City of York Safeguarding Children Board’s are seeking your assistance to help develop their understanding of safeguarding practice across the sector.

In order to achieve this, we would be grateful if you would participate in a self-assessment audit by completing the audit tool.

by: Friday 1st December 2017 sending it via email to: lscb@northyorks.gov.uk

The audit examines a number of safeguarding matters including codes of practice, policies, procedures and training. By completing the tool it will assist your organisation to identify areas for development and help the Safeguarding Children Board’s to strengthen their understanding of safeguarding arrangements within the voluntary sector and share good practice.

If you have any questions regarding this audit please contact Sophia Lenton-Brook (NYSCB Leadership Support Officer) Sophia.Lenton-Brook@northyorks.gov.uk or call 01609-532114
