Agency Roles and Responsibilities

Section 3, Infrastructure and Governance to deliver Safeguarding Responsibilities has been updated as a result of a revision to the statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children. Policies for responding to allegations against a person who works with children must now cover situations where an individual has behaved or may have behaved in a way that indicates they may not be suitable to work with children. This is to capture concerns around transferable risk; for example where a person who works with children is involved in a domestic abuse incident at home and this may have implications for their suitability to work with child.

Guidance for Safe Recruitment, Selection and Retention for Staff and Volunteers

This guidance has been updated as a result of the UK's exit from the European Union. Information has been added on how employers can now check that an individual has the right to work in the UK during the recruitment process. Following EU exit, there is amended guidance on checking the past conduct of individuals who have lived or worked overseas. Links in the Further Information section have been revised. Contents
