Why attend

The rights of children and vulnerable adults are self-evident for us.

A significant part of the work of community foundations affects children and vulnerable adults. We consider it of utmost importance that children and vulnerable adults feel safe and are being protected from harm.

As support organisations we encourage community foundations to grow and to play a significant role on the local level. We provide knowledge and promote learnings.

Are Safeguarding Guidelines and Processes part of our activity?

This Online Meeting will provide WHAT Safeguarding principles are, WHY we should start or improve working on safeguarding measures, HOW we can develop safeguarding guidelines and promote them among our constituency.

It is aimed to those organisations that promote and support the development of community foundations in Europe.
