Leaders in Safeguarding
Standards and Quality Mark
We firmly believe that our Safeguarding Standards can be reached by all organisations that provide services for children, young people and vulnerable adults. Our consultants are experienced safeguarding professionals from health, education and social care backgrounds. Our safeguarding audit process is thorough and highly effective. Your audit report will contain recommendations to improve any aspects of your work which do not meet our standards.
We can help you to establish outstanding safeguarding arrangements and offer support, planning, and training to further strengthen your services. Following your audit we can support you in addressing any areas requiring improvement or causing concern. Meeting our Standards provides you with increased confidence to face statutory inspection.
Displaying the Leaders in Safeguarding Quality Mark shows that your policies, procedures and everyday practices have been checked by our experts. The Quality Mark demonstrates to your clients and customers that you prioritise safeguarding and that you are serious about ensuring safety and promoting welfare in the services you provide.
Updating your policies and procedures?
“Local agencies, including the police and health services, also have a duty under section 11 of the Children Act 2004 to ensure that they consider the need to safeguard and promote the welfare of children when carrying out their functions. Under section 10 of the same Act, a similar range of agencies are required to cooperate with local authorities to promote the well-being of children in each local authority area (see chapter 1). This cooperation should exist and be effective at all levels of the organisation, from strategic level through to operational delivery. Professionals working in agencies with these duties are responsible for ensuring that they fulfil their role and responsibilities in a manner consistent with the statutory duties of their employer”
