Every organisation that delivers charitable activities has a responsibility to safeguard people from harm or abuse, whether they are staff members, volunteers, or other people who come into contact with your charity through its work.
For more information about the safeguarding responsibilities for charities and trustees, visit the Charity Commission's guidance.
The NSPCC has guidance and a telephone helpline available if you are worried about the safety of a child. A child is defined as anyone who has not yet reached their 18th birthday.
The Ann Craft Trust has guidance and a directory of telephone helplines if you are worried about the safety of an adult at risk.
