Safeguarding Children and Young People Audit tool for the Private and Voluntary Sector working in North Tyneside

 

 

North Tyneside Council has designed this audit tool to help organisations in the private and voluntary sector, churches, other places of worship and faith-based organisations, to assess how well prepared they are for keeping children and young people safe. It also helps to identify and plan for any areas for development or improvement.

The voluntary and private sector do not have a statutory responsibility to complete and return the audit, however, they should have the same safeguarding arrangements in place as organisations in the public sector, and need to work effectively with the Local Safeguarding Children Board, and therefore they may find this tool useful.

Having completed the audit the NTSCB would really welcome feedback by answering three simple questions at the end of the audit and copying them into an e-mail to sue.burns@northtyneside.gov.uk
