The Alliance’s Safeguarding Working Group

Safeguarding Working Group for Alliance Members

The Alliance's Safeguarding Working Group was launched in September 2019 in our continuing commitment to transforming standards of safeguarding. This working group provides a space for members to share their experience of fostering safe organisations and building robust safeguarding policies, procedures and practice. The Safeguarding Working Group is open to Alliance members (individual and organisational).

The Safeguarding Working Group facilitates discussion and initiatives towards strengthening capacity and practice in safeguarding and embedding an organisational culture where safeguarding incidents are unacceptable and procedures for reporting incidents are clearly set out and understood across organisations. This takes into account the requirements for Scottish Government and other funder compliance, the regulatory environment in Scotland and the evolving UK and global context and the resources being developed.
