UK: Safeguarding requirements under the Buddhist Insurance SchemeOn Tue, 22 March, 2022 - 08:09
Most Buddhist charities in the UK are insured under the Buddhist Insurance Scheme, which is underwritten by Ecclesiastical Insurance.
To ensure that you would actually be covered should your charity ever have reason to make an insurance claim related to a Safeguarding matter, do look at Ecclesiastical’s expectations of charities in relation to Safeguarding standards.
Please note that although Ecclesiastical defines Safeguarding as the protection of children and vulnerable adults, the Charity Commission for England and Wales requires charities to protect all adults from harm, not just those who may be defined as vulnerable or at risk. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/safeguarding-for-charities-and-trustees
