Dr Dan recently visited SAFE cic, a community interest company in Eye which handles Criminal Records Bureau checks (CRB) for voluntary groups and provides local organisations with advice on how to complete safeguarding risk assessments for both adults and children.
SAFE cic currently have around 1200 client organisations and also offer various online training courses to enable groups, such as the Scouts, to fulfil their safeguarding obligations when working with children or vulnerable adults.
