Webinar: The role of the lead trustee for safeguarding

8 September 2021 | 2pm – 3pm 

Delivered through the medium of English

Webinar aim 

A webinar to consider the role of the lead trustee for safeguarding and how this can contribute to your safeguarding activity.


The past year with the COVID-19 crisis has raised multiple safeguarding issues for voluntary organisations, from how to adapt services to meet the needs of people who may be at risk and how to keep staff, beneficiaries and volunteers safe in this situation. Never has the phrase ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s business’ been more relevant. 

 The first in our autumn series of webinars will explore the role of the lead trustee for safeguarding and consider how this can support your safeguarding activity. 

 Good and appropriate safeguarding provides public reassurance about your organisation and contributes to the positive reputation of the voluntary sector in general. 

 Learning outcomes 

The webinar will cover: 

  • Why might we appoint a lead trustee for safeguardingand how? 
  • What might they do? 
  • How is their role different to that of the designated lead/officer for safeguarding? 
  • How might this strengthen our approach to safeguarding and practice? 

 Who is the webinar for? 

This webinar will be suitable for those staff, volunteer leads and trustees who have responsibility for safeguarding in their organisations.
