Go further and be recognised for safe practice!

Safeguarding is a key element of the RVA Safe and Sound quality award for good governance in charities. Through this process you have the opportunity to review your safeguarding practices and feel assured that they are up to date and fit for purpose when delivering your services to children and adults at risk.

Moreover, you will have added benefit of being recognised both internally amongst your volunteers and service users, and externally by funders and partners for this good practice in safeguarding.

Safe and Sound continues to be available as a FREE service to Reading’s voluntary and community groups.
Learn more about Safe and Sound here, or contact advice@rva.org.uk for an informal chat about how to get started.
