Safeguarding in the grant making process

This page is free to all

As a grant maker, you have a unique opportunity to contribute to better safeguarding practice.   

  • Your funding terms and conditions should demand that grantees achieve a certain standard.
  • You could enable grantees to access good safeguarding information and resources, providing links to reputable tools, checklists and advice.
  • You could share good practice among your grantees.  
The Castle Foundation have awarded a grant to Street Y’s who provide hot drinks and food for people who are homeless. During a monitoring visit, Castle Foundation staff member Carole, is shown a pocket safeguarding guide which Street Y’s give to their volunteers. Carole lets Street Y’s know she will share this with other foundation grantees as an example of good practice.

We cover the steps you should take in two separate documents.
