Big Lottery launches Safeguarding Training Fund
Big Lottery is working on a jointly funded programme with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) to invest £1.14 million to improve access to training, support and advice.
It is part of a wider government strategy to improve safeguarding practice across the voluntary sector in England.
The funding will be delivered in two phases. The first, called safeguarding resources for England, will see an organisation tasked with developing high quality resources that will be freely available to the voluntary sector to improve practice.
The second will fund a small number of organisations to share these resources and help grassroots charities and community organisations to improve their safeguarding.
Applications for phase one are for up to £570,000 and the deadline is Monday 14 January 12:00pm.
