SAFE NETWORK - NATIONAL SAFEGUARDING UNIT FOR THE THIRD SECTOR
The Safe Network is jointly managed by the NSPCC and Children England, and was created as a result of the Government's Staying Safe action plan. The 'Safe Network' believes that all children should be safe from harm. Together with our partners, we are working towards these main aims:
We want all voluntary sector organisations to have effective safeguarding policies in place
We are helping organisations reduce avoidable accidents in services and activities
We want to increase awareness that safeguarding children in everybody's responsibility
We do this by providing a comprehensive website www.safenetwork.org.uk, help lines for both children, young people and adults and a toolkit.
For more information visit www.safenetwork.org.uk where you also can register to receive updates and information. Additionally you can contact Gill Middleton to discuss how Safe Network can support your organisation/group with Safeguarding issues, including training and awareness sessions in your area.
