Changes to positions of trust legislation

Last updated: 07 Sep 2022 Topics: Duty of care Inappropriate or concerning behaviour Safe recruitment
In this podcast episode, we talk with our colleagues in the NSPCC about the new legislation passed in England and Wales on 28 June 2022, and soon in Northern Ireland, which makes it illegal for someone in a position of trust in sports and faith organisations to have a sexual relationship with someone aged 16-17 in their care. 
The extension to the positions of trust legislation comes after the NSPCC’s ‘Close the Loophole’ campaign. In this podcast we analyse who is included in the extension to the law and what this means for your organisation.
