As part of developing a safeguarding policy and procedures, organisations must consider and develop clear guidelines for the retention, storage and destruction of records relating to child welfare concerns or concerns about possible risk posed by employees. 
Whilst guidelines exist for statutory and regulated organisations it is often less clear what organisations in the voluntary, community or private sectors should do. This guidance has been developed to assist them.
