Safeguarding standards - self-assessment guidance

Bracknell Forest Safeguarding Board (BFSB) works to support its partners in order to ensure they are compliant with the safeguarding standards required to keep adults safe, and:

  • clearly and simply identify shared responsibilities for safeguarding adults at risk.
  • provide tools to support assessment against agreed safeguarding standards.

The Bracknell Forest Self-Assessment Safeguarding Tool is designed to help all organisations reflect on how robust their arrangements are for a range of safeguarding scenarios that broadly fall within the following four areas:

  1.  Their recruitment, training and supervision/support of staff/volunteers.
  2. Their development of safeguarding procedures that are routinely reviewed/revised.
  3. Their leadership and the quality of the governance provided by senior managers/trustees.
  4. Their ability to work collaboratively and know how and when to share information.

Guidance 'Too Important to Get Wrong' has been produced to accompany the tool.
