Information for Voluntary Sector


The Safeguarding Partnership Board (SPB) recognises that Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility. Voluntary sector agencies are an essential part of the network of agencies and individuals, statutory, private and voluntary that contribute to the safety of children and of adults on the Island.

Procedures

The SPB has produced Multi-Agency Procedures for working to safeguard children and adults.  These procedures are available online, follow these links for Children’s Procedures and Adult Procedures.

Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)

The Safeguarding Partnership Board has produced a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which explains how it seeks to work with partner agencies. An increasing number of voluntary sector agencies are now signatories of the MOU and so may take part in the regular audit process which allows them to assess their organisation from a safeguarding perspective.

This document is available via the States of Jersey website here – MoU and Audit Template.
