Volunteer user testers safeguarding

Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS):

In January 2020, DCMS published an online tool to help charities in England to handle the reporting of safeguarding allegations about the behaviour or actions of a person in their charity. In order to continually improve this service, they are seeking volunteer user testers to enable them to identify improvements.

The next user testing sessions will take place on Friday 25 September, but they can try to find a suitable alternative if you are unable to attend on this date. The sessions, which will be conducted remotely, will take between 45 minutes and an hour and will be carried out by Nudge Digital, contracted by DCMS.

They  are particularly keen to hear from those who work in smaller and micro charities (turnover approx. <£100,000). You do not have to work in a safeguarding role to take part as the tool is designed to support all those who work for a charity. If you are interested in participating to help them improve this service, please contact Patrick McKenna (patrick.mckenna@culture.gov.uk).

The online tool can be found here.
