Ref: The Charity Commission’s work on safeguarding vulnerable beneficiariesHTML
Trustees of charities which work with vulnerable groups including children have a duty of care to their charity which will include taking the necessary steps to safeguard and take responsibility for their beneficiaries.
The commission aims to ensure that the trustees of charities which work with or provide services to vulnerable beneficiaries:
comply with their duties as trustees
protect beneficiaries as best they can
minimise the risk of abuse
