Safeguarding consultancy and training
I am an experienced safeguarding professional having worked in many different roles. As a front line worker, I have been in the position of working with families when concerns are raised about their children. I then moved to manage teams with safeguarding responsibilities firstly in a local authority. This involved training front line workers, developing polices and systems and supervising staff.
My work in the voluntary sector was managing a large service spread over a number of sites. We were commissioned to offer support services from an initial point of contact – for example after a baby was born in a family – through to high level work with Children’s Social care. This involved high levels of multi-agency working as well as working at different tiers of intervention.
I keep my experience up to date working as a volunteer for Girlguiding, where I am the Lead Volunteer for safeguarding. Supporting staff and volunteers to develop working systems and policies to fit wide ranging circumstances means I walk the walk!
So how can I help your organisation?
- I offer a wide range of safeguarding training
- I can review policies and procedures for your origination, working alongside the designated safeguarding lead if that is your preference
- I can carry out a full safeguarding audit to support you to evidence that you are trying to embed a culture of safeguarding
