  • Specifying appropriate policies
  • Implementing processes
  • Monitoring activity to ensure policies and procedures are followed
  • Holding the executive to account for the day-to-day running of the activities of the charity
  • Allocating sufficient resources to the management of safeguarding activity
  • Leading a culture which promotes excellence in safeguarding
