NSPCC safeguarding standards and guides

The NSPCC has published updated editions of two safeguarding publications: Standards and guidance for the voluntary and community sector in England is designed to help non-statutory organisations put in place clear safeguarding arrangements for children, young people and young adults up to the age of 25; and Are they safe?: a safeguarding guide for group leaders in the voluntary and community sector, which provides a range of activities, support or services, from arts activities and hobbies to faith-based education or community work.
