It is every Trustee’s worst nightmare. A safeguarding failure.

Charity trustees are responsible for ensuring that those benefiting from, or working with, their charity, are not harmed in any way through contact with it. The safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults should be at the very heart of any charity’s governance, whoever their beneficiaries are and in whatever sphere the charity operates.

This interactive seminar will explore the law and fundamental principles for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, how they apply to charity boards of trustees (including charities working internationally), and what should be done or may happen when a safeguarding issue arises.

We will also bring the theory to life using case studies, and introduce some tools for boards to use when discharging their safeguarding responsibilities.

We will hear from:
Emma Dowden-Teale and Claire Whittle from Bates Wells Braithwaite who will explain the legal and regulatory framework in relation to safeguarding

Sam Monaghan, Barnardo’s Director of Children’s Services (England) and Amanda Ellingworth (Chair of Plan International UK) who will suggest hints and tools for assuring compliance at trustee board level.
