NCVO welcomes new government commitments on safeguarding

NCVO has welcomed new new government commitments on safeguarding in charities.

Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, said:

Charities have been leading a lot of work to improve safeguarding and I’m very pleased to have the minister’s backing. This funding will help turn plans into reality and prevent abusers using charities as cover for their crimes.’

We had positive feedback to our consultation on the charity code of ethics – a charity sector equivalent to the Nolan principles for public life – and expect to publish it later this year. I hope it will become an indispensable tool for charity trustees to ensure their organisations are always acting with the greatest integrity.
