Welcome to our new Organisational Safeguarding Assessment. This assessment has been designed to support organisations to measure their safeguarding arrangements against a set of criteria agreed by both children's and adults safeguarding partnerships. You may work with just children, adults or both and undertaking this assessment means you just need to fill out the one form.

You should complete this audit tool if your organisation works with children, young people or adults at risk or if your organisation comes into contact with them as part of your wider activities. The degree of compliance required within each standard will depend on the role and function of your individual agencies. See the instructions for further guidance.
