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. This tool will help charities in England to handle the reporting of safeguarding allegations about the behaviour or actions of a person in their charity.
An allegation or concern means that a person has or may have behaved in a way that has harmed a child or adult, has possibly committed a criminal offence against a child or adult, or behaved towards a child(ren) or adult(s) in a way that indicates they may pose a risk of harm to others.
