Safeguarding: not just children and "adults who may be at risk"

Safeguarding: not just children and "adults who may be at risk"

By Munisha on Fri, 30 Oct, 2020 - 12:36

It’s a common misconception that Triratna charities only need to protect from harm children and those ‘adults who may be considered at risk’ (or ‘vulnerable adults’, a term no longer used).

However, everyone needs protection from harm. These days trustees are responsible for protecting all their beneficiaries from harm in the course of their charity’s activities. This is a clear requirement of the Charity Commission for England and Wales, the Scottish Charity Regulator and the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission, to mention just three...

By ECA Safeguarding on Wed, 24 Jun, 2020 - 17:16

Here are Triratna’s model Ethical guidelines and policies for Safeguarding children and adults, updated for 2020 by Triratna’s ECA Safeguarding team.

(See below for more information on Safeguarding, the Safeguarding team, the Ethics Kula and the difference between Safeguarding matters and Matters of Order conduct.)

Safeguarding and ethical policies and procedures are a practical expression of ahimsa, non-harming, the value underlying Buddhist precepts and the Bodhisattva activity of protecting living beings from harm.

Triratna Model Safeguarding policies and Ethical Guidelines 2020

By Munisha on Tue, 7 Apr, 2020 - 15:51

Members of Triratna’s European Chairs’ Assembly (ECA: the Chairs of Triratna centres, retreat centres and other initiatives in Europe) take seriously their responsibility to protect children and adults from harm in the course of Triratna activities.

The ECA employs an overall Safeguarding officer, Munisha, who works with the Safeguarding Adviser, Amaladipa, who is very senior in the criminal justice system in the UK.

Triratna has model Safeguarding policies and ethical guidelines, updated every year.

Meet the new Triratna Safeguarding team

By Munisha on Wed, 8 Nov, 2017 - 18:21

Safeguarding work in Triratna, in progress since 2013, has developed enormously in the last three months. As the overall Safeguarding officer (Munisha) I’d like to bring you up to date.

Training On 4th October, around 30 Safeguarding officers and trustees from Triratna centres across the UK, and Saddhaloka (Chair of Triratna’s College of Public Preceptors), gathered at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre for our second training day. After last year’s training in child protection, this year we worked on ‘Safeguarding adults’ with the help of an...
