CHSAB Safeguarding Log Sheet

Communication and Engagement

Across the VCS safeguarding leads, project leads and frontline staff play an important role in safeguarding adults at risk of abuse and neglect and children and young people. The sector supports adults at risk of abuse and neglect to understand their rights and get the support they need in a range of circumstances. As part of our commitment to safeguard service users it is important to monitor the safeguarding trends in our teams as an organisation.

Key areas; financial abuse, domestic abuse, FGM and substance misuse, transition to adulthood or retirement and support with mental health / wellbeing needs.

Colleagues use this template to keep track of the safeguarding concerns emerging in your work. The information will help you to understand key issues for all tiers of the organisation.  The information will be collected on the first of each month. A summary can be exported and shared with the relevant safeguarding board partners to improve practice and relationships. Kindly return to Kristine@hcvs.org.uk

HMRC Press release - Children remaining in full time non-advance education and approved training

As exam results are released in Scotland today, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is reminding parents who receive Child Benefit and Child Tax Credits to inform them of their child’s educational status ahead of 31 August, otherwise payments will stop.

Parents can use the Personal Tax Account (PTA) service to update both their Child Benefit and Child Tax Credit information online in a matter of minutes; it’s quick and easy, and more than 12 million customers have registered for the PTA so far.

Parents must let HMRC know if their children are aged 16+ and continuing in full-time education or are undertaking an apprenticeship. Alternatively, if a young person leaves education or training - for example to start full-time work or because their course has ended, claimants must report this change straight away to prevent the build-up of overpayments, which they will have to pay back.
