Safeguarding Training Fund Opens for Applications – 21st July 2019 (England)

The National Lottery Community Fund, together with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport have launched phase 2 of the Safeguarding Training Fund.

The first phase is currently supporting the ‘Safer Social Sector Partnership’ led by NCVO to design a national and generic online safeguarding training package, suitable for all charities big and small, to improve safeguarding/safe culture practice.

The overall objectives of phase 2 of the Safeguarding Training Fund are:

  • To improve awareness of good safeguarding practice through the delivery of a national and generic safeguarding training package. This will improve access to safeguarding training and support to protect both children and adults at risk, and promote a safe culture within charities.
  • To extend the reach of existing resources around safeguarding, and support engaging mechanisms to deliver safeguarding training which reaches both small and large organisations.
  • To provide an insight into the impact of the safeguarding training, which helps to build a long term legacy for this work and embed good safeguarding practice and awareness into the sector.

Grants of between £50,000 and £115,000 are available to charities and other not for profit organisations that can demonstrate the capacity and reach to enhance the safeguarding culture within smaller organisations.  It is anticipated that 5 – 10 organisations / partnerships will be supported.

Expressions of interest need to be submitted by the 21st July 2019.  Applicants successful at this stage will have until the 22nd September 2019 to submit a full application.
