Safeguarding Resources and Links
Safeguarding is the responsibility of everyone. Protecting and safeguarding people is a governance priority for all charities, community groups and social enterprises. On this page you can find useful resources about protecting children, young people and adults from harm and abuse.
Government guidelines make clear that safeguarding is a fundamental part of operating as a charity for the public benefit and that trustees must take reasonable steps to protect from harm people who are in contact with your organisation.
At EHCVS we support organisations to understand the role that they play in protecting service users. We run safeguarding training so that organisations can meet the safeguarding compliance requirements set by funding organisations. We can also offer groups the chance for a 1-2-1 session going through a safeguarding checklist. Safeguarding Audits and more.

You should have policies which are based on the guidance from your local safeguarding children and safeguarding adults team and remind you of their guidance on reporting safeguarding concerns.
When you are managing safeguarding concerns where either your organisation or your staff, volunteers. trustees or anyone in contact with your organisation has caused harm or pose a risk to individuals you will usually need to make a number of different reports.

LGBTQI+ mental health booklet and new self-care resources for primary and secondary schools- Anna Freud Centre
We have launched a new resource to support the mental health of LGBTQI+ young people which includes advice and guidance around a range of topics which might impact on their mental health. The resource includes sign-posting to a range of support at a time when access to support and safe spaces may have been limited.
Our schools team have also updated our popular #SelfCareSummer booklets for primary and secondary aged children and young people so that they can be used all year round and ahead of the upcoming festive break
