We are excited to be part of a new partnership between local infrastructure organisations that has been formed to help charities across the region to protect vulnerable people and will allow us to offer greater support around safeguarding to groups across Northumberland.

Safer Culture North East, a partnership between Voluntary Organisations’ Network North East (VONNE), Connected VoiceNorthumberland CVACatalyst Stockton on Tees and ourselves will champion safeguarding and help charities across the region to embed best practice.

The group has been awarded £115K in funding by the National Lottery Community Fund (The Fund) and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), to deliver regular training sessions to voluntary organisations and work with local safeguarding networks. The project will also raise awareness of a new online safeguarding tool, launched last week, which offers charities a helpful step by step decision-making tool for those with concerns about someone’s conduct within their organisation.
