The Big Lottery Fund and the government have teamed up to provide safeguarding training to charities across the UK.

The announcement comes as part of the wider government strategy to improve safeguarding practice across the voluntary sector in England.

Together, the DCMS and Big Lottery Fund will invest £1.14m to improve access to training, support and advice. The funding will come over two phases until 2022.

As part of phase one, The Safeguarding Training Fund will be seeking an organisation or partnership of organisations with the track record and knowledge to develop high quality resources, which will be freely available to the voluntary sector to improve safeguarding practice.

Charities are invited to express their interest up until 13 January at 11.59pm. In mid-January, up to three organisations will be asked to submit a full application for funding.

The deadline for full applications will be 17 February and phase one will commence at the end of March 2019.

Phase two will commence in spring/summer 2019 and will provide funding to a small number of organisations or partnerships.

The funding will allow these charities to share the resources developed during phase one and support grassroots charities and community organisations to improve their safeguarding practice.
