Why do I need
employee screening to safeguard my charity or not-for-profit organisation?
Charities such as Oxfam have been heavily affected by volunteer-related scandals. So, this has led to a number of UK charities increasing the amount of resources involved in their safeguarding and background screening procedures to help prevent previous offenders from being re-employed in the sector.
The UK charity and not-for-profit sector contributes almost £20 billion to the UK economy and employs nearly 1 million people. So trust, ethics and transparency are of utmost importance across the sector.
