    As a charity working with, and supporting a range of organisations that work with children and young people, it is important that the organisations we invest in have the relevant policies and insurances in place to ensure safeguarding of young people. Therefore, there are some assurances/checks that we need to carry out before funding can be awarded. As such, please complete the questions below.
