As thousands of people volunteer to help their communities, organisations move to deliver their services online quickly, and trustees and leaders of charities are faced with challenges that just a few weeks ago would have been unthinkable, safeguarding needs to remain at the heart of our collective response.

Durham Community Action as a partner in the Safer Culture North East project have been working to adapt our project to meet the specific demands of the current situation; thanks go to The Community Fund and DCMS for allowing flexibility in the project.

We have created with our partners some easy to read factsheets for the sector, designed as brief introductions to the subject matter with links showing where to get further information for people and organisations who are new to safeguarding and having to respond quickly whilst facing enormous challenges. 

These factsheets are aimed at volunteers, trustees, community groups and those employees and volunteers new to delivering services online.  The factsheets are available here
