Safeguarding in the Charity Sector
The Charity Commission has announced a suite of measures to help ensure charities learn the wider lessons from recent safeguarding revelations involving Oxfam and other charities, and to strengthen public trust and confidence in charities. These include a summit on safeguarding in UK charities, a new taskforce to handle the recent increase in safeguarding incident reports, and additional safeguarding expertise.
