Child Protection and Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults - Guidance and Training
Volunteer Now was commissioned by the Deparment of Health to develop the publication "Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults", which contains minimum standards of best practice and guidance for organisations working with vulnerable adults in the voluntary, community and independent sectors.
Our Duty to Care (ODTC) is a Volunteer Now project which promotes standards and guidance for safeguarding children and young people, as outlined in Keeping Children Safe: Our Duty to Care. In addition, Volunteer Now also promotes the standards and guidance for adult safeguarding, as outlined in Keeping Adults Safe: A Shared Responsibility. To download a copy of these standards and guidance, please visit the Volunteer Now website.
