Safeguarding Resources

Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) has been awarded over £100k from the National Lottery Community Fund to promote good safeguarding practice to village and community halls throughout England. As a valued member of the ACRE network we will be working with voluntary management committees across Leicestershire and Rutland to ensure they have the knowledge and confidence to operate in a safe and welcoming manor for all who work or use their facility.

Find out more about the safeguarding requirements for your hall by following the links below
