Safeguarding is in the spotlight for charities. Recently the government has, in effect, broadened the scope of what it considers ‘safeguarding’ in the charity sector to include not only children and vulnerable adults, but also the duty of care charities have to other groups that they come into contact with: their staff and volunteers; beneficiaries; and those who live and work where the charity operates.
