  • The Leaders in Safeguarding quality mark

What we do

Our approved safeguarding consultants visit organisations to assess the effectiveness of safeguarding arrangements. This involves close examination of recruitment, training, policies and procedures as well as observation of day to day practice and routine.

A full audit is conducted and a detailed report is produced.

Once this has been completed the safeguarding consultant presents their assessment and report to the Leaders in Safeguarding scrutiny and validation panel for approval.

The Leaders in Safeguarding panel consists of expert professionals from health, education, social care and statutory inspection sectors.

Organisations meeting statutory requirements and the Leaders in Safeguarding Standard are approved for the Leaders in Safeguarding quality mark.
