National Lottery Community Fund - Safeguarding Training Fund

Phase two funding is available for voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations or partnership to support the distribution of phase 1 materials, promote and champion safeguarding/safe culture, and enable local networking and self-support.

Phase 1: Safeguarding resources for England funded a partnership of organisations to develop high quality resources which will be freely available to the voluntary sector to improve safeguarding practice.
Phase 2: Safeguarding training and development will provide funding to a small number of organisations or partnership(s) to share the resources developed during Phase 1 and support grassroots charities and community organisations to improve their safeguarding practice.

The overall objective of the Safeguarding Training Fund is to:

  • Improve awareness of good safeguarding practice through the delivery of a national and generic safeguarding training package, which will improve access to safeguarding training and support to protect both children and adults at risk, and promote a safe culture within charities.
  • Extend the reach of existing resources around safeguarding, and support innovative mechanisms to deliver safeguarding training which reaches both small and large organisations.
  • Provide an insight into the impact of the safeguarding training, which helps to build a long-term legacy for this work and embed good safeguarding practice and awareness into the sector

Expressions of interest are invited, closing date is 21 July 2019.
