This is a suite of core policies that can be adapted or used as they are to strengthen your safeguarding framework. Together they cover the basics that you need to have in place in your organisation.

Click on the links below to download the templates as Word documents.

Safeguarding policy
This policy will help your organisation protect people, particularly children, at risk adults and beneficiaries of assistance, from any harm that may be caused due to their coming into contact with your organisation.

Code of conduct
Use this policy to set out the conduct expected of your staff. Many organisations ask all staff to sign this policy when they join.

Dealing with safeguarding reports
This is a set of procedures that set out the process for dealing with reports of breach of your safeguarding policy. 

Disclosure of malpractice in the workplace (whistleblowing)
This outlines the organisation’s commitment to non-retaliation against staff members who report any malpractice concerns (including safeguarding).

Complaints policy
This sets out the organisation’s commitment to receive and respond to complaints. It governs the procedures set out under "Dealing with safeguarding reports".
