Checklists and frameworks

This page is free to all

You can use checklists, tools and frameworks to review what your organisation is already doing for safeguarding and what else needs doing. 

  • Work with 0-18 year olds and want to focus on safeguarding? NSPCC Learning has a safeguarding and child protection self-assessment tool which helps your organisation audit current safeguarding and child protection arrangements.

  • Want to look at safeguarding children and young people alongside wider practice in youth work? UK Youth has safeguarding information including a quality assurance framework. You can download an interactive PDF that covers safeguarding, youth engagement and helping young people be heard. 
  • Thinking about safeguarding adults? The Ann Craft Trust has a safeguarding adults checklist. You can complete it as an individual or as an organisation. It helps you assess your understanding of safeguarding and provides links to resources so you can learn more.
  • Want to work through a full process of thinking about safeguarding online, and make sure your digital safeguarding policy and procedures line up with the rest of your practice? Work through the Digisafe toolkit.
