Multi-faith safeguarding hub launched

The Safe Network, which provides information and resources to keep children safe, has announced the launch of a new safeguarding resource for faith groups, the Multi-faith safeguarding hub.

The online resource produced by Safe Network and partners from across the faith and voluntary sector provides access to a range of information, resources, support and networking opportunities with a multi-faith focus.

The hub aims to encourage faith based groups and organisations to share good safeguarding practice with each other.

It covers the six main faiths in the UK; Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism as well as an Inter-faith section. Within each section users will find:

  • A film showing personal faith statements and activities with children and young people;
  • Faith-specific stories and texts which show how children and young people are valued;
  • Safeguarding case scenarios;
  • Examples of best practice;
  • Information and resources; and
  • details of specialist organisations or other relevant links.

The Multi-faith hub is suitable for:

  • Individuals with a safeguarding role in their faith setting;
  • Support services, community groups or other organisations who engage with their faith sector on safeguarding issues;
  • Local safeguarding children boards; and
  • Anyone with an interest in safeguarding within a faith setting.
