Voluntary, Community and Faith Organisations


All voluntary, community and faith organisations need to understand their safeguarding roles and responsibilities (alongside those of other organisations and services) in order to help keep adults with care and support needs safe from abuse and neglect, and promote their wellbeing.

There is a range of help and support for voluntary, community and faith organisations working in Wolverhampton from Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council. This includes safeguarding support which you can access as follows:

1. Specific support for faith groups

There are over 250 faith groups in Wolverhampton which you can find details for all of these on the Wolverhampton Faith Map

2. Individual and group support for any voluntary or community organisation

  • contact Stephen Dodd (Youth Organisations Wolverhampton Co-ordinator) by email: steve@yow.org.uk or phone: 01902 328985 / 07981 931849
  • or Sharon Nanan-Sen (Voluntary and Community Sector Support Worker) - by email: snanan-sen@wolverhamptonvsc.org.uk) or phone: 01902 328982

Please ask for any help you need - there is no such thing as a silly question and we are used to working with organisations at all levels of awareness in relation to safeguarding.
