Safeguarding and You

Mothers' Union is committed to protecting children and adults who are at risk and making sure they are safe when involved in our activities. But safeguarding is also about looking out for ourselves and for other members in Mothers' Union. This section includes information and activities to make us aware of what we can all do to create a safer environment for everyone.

We want to start a new project. What do we do about safeguarding?

If you've had a great idea about a new project for your group or branch but are unsure what to do about safeguarding, this is the place to look.
