Safe recruitment is central to the safeguarding of children and young people. All organisations which employ staff or volunteers to work with children and young people and adults at risk have a duty to safeguard and promote their welfare.
Safer recruitment is a set of practices to help make sure your staff and volunteers are suitable to work with adults at risk and children and young people. It’s a vital part of creating a safe and positive environment and making a commitment to keep those most vulnerable members of our society safe from harm.
This event is part of Safer Culture North East, a partnership between VONNE, Connected Voice, Durham Community Action, Catalyst Stockton-on-Tees and Northumberland CVA, funded jointly by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and The National Lottery Community Fund.
