£1.2m fund announced for charity safeguarding training

1st April 2019

Civil Society Minister Mims Davies has announced that the Government and The National Lottery Community Fund are investing £1.2 million to develop new training to improve charities’ knowledge of safeguarding requirements.

The National Council for Voluntary Organisations will bring together a partnership of organisations to develop the high-quality training, and NAVCA is pleased to be part of this important piece of work.

The Minister said it is vital that all charity employees and volunteers are able to spot warning signs of unacceptable behaviour, bullying and harassment and know how to handle and report concerns.

The training is part of a package of measures that comes 6 months after the launch of the Civil Society Strategy. You can read more about this story here.
