Safeguarding Information for Volunteers

Many people will be volunteering to help their communities during the coronavirus outbreak, so it is important for them to understand how to spot the signs of abuse and neglect, and how to report any concerns they may have.  

DCC has a poster with information for volunteers about what to look out for and what they should do if they’re worried about someone being abused or neglected.

Waltham Forest Council has produced a short video for volunteers who are working anywhere to support their local residents - www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHQG8CJROhU. The purpose of the video is to raise the awareness with volunteers of safeguarding for children and vulnerable adults, and tell them what to do if they see something that does not feel right.

The message is simple: if you see something, say something.
