The Charity Commission has updated its guidance on reporting serious incidents, following growing concern that they are being under-reported by charities. 
 
Last year, charities reported 2,181 incidents to the Commission, over half of which (55%) related to safeguarding; around one in seven (14%) related to fraud or money laundering, with a third of reported frauds being internal (‘insider’) fraud. However, the Commission believes that many more serious incidents are going unreported.

The Government is looking to better support charities and young people to participate in ‘full-time social action’. It is consulting with young people and the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector to find out how the full-time volunteering experience can be improved, and common barriers could be overcome.
 
The review will gather evidence on the current opportunities available, the current status of full-time volunteers, the impact of full-time social action on young people and their communities.

The Bristol Safeguarding Adults and Children Boards have launched a new joint website. This website will now act as the focal point for all safeguarding information relating to adults and children for both residents and professionals alike.
 
The site is split into two halves, one to represent the Bristol Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB) and the other to host information relating to the Bristol Safeguarding Adults Board (BSAB).
