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.
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.
