Keeping Children Safe

Keeping Children Safe has developed the toolkit ‘Child safeguarding measures for use in Emergencies’ , a resource to help organisations to develop and implement child safeguarding measures during emergencies. To accompany the toolkit, Keeping Children Safe also produced this pocket guide, which provides a snapshot of what is needed for child safeguarding. The guide will help you understand the concerns which require a safeguarding response, how to adapt a safeguarding policy to the local context, the roles and responsibilities required to implement policies and procedures and what is good practice on recruitment, complaints handling, communicating the policy and procedures and monitoring and evaluating their effectiveness. It provides a handy reference containing the minimum standards required to safeguard children, helpful checklists, and guidance notes.
