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, leading to a number of UK charities guaranteeing an increased amount of resources to 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 £12 billion to the UK economy and employs nearly 3% of the UK workforce, so trust, ethics and transparency are of utmost importance across the sector.
