The Safeguarding Company

We Are Safeguardians

It is our belief that it is the duty of every society to take care of all children and adults wherever they live, learn and work. It is implicit within this that providing safe environments in which children and adults can live, learn and work is not just beneficial for them, their families, schools, and employers, but also for the safeguarders and, ultimately, all of humankind.

We provide safeguarding solutions that prevent, reduce and eliminate abuse, harm and neglect and protect the wellbeing, health and human rights of children and adults all over the world. 

Children and adults who feel safe and secure will be happier, more productive and more likely to thrive because of the positivity and opportunities that our safeguarding solutions enable. 

We are safeguardians and we offer a world of protection. What we believe in and what we do is beneficial for each and every one of us.

It’s safeguarding for Everyone, Everywhere.

Our comprehensive, holistic approach ensures that all our customer’s safeguarding needs are taken care of through a single point of contact, backed up by an unrivalled support network.

Our Values

Our values are the fundamental principles that support us to achieve our Mission. Our values guide all of our dealings with our customers, our partners, and each other.

Trust - We strive to earn and retain the trust that people place in us

Integrity - We are honest, law-abiding, ethical and fair in every aspect of our work. 

Care - We truly care about and respect our customers and each other 

Commitment - We are relentless in our efforts to achieve our Mission

Excellence - We continually grow our knowledge and skills to provide even better services 

The Practice of Safeguarding

In our experience, effective safeguarding practice rests on three core intentions:

  • To protect all children and adults from abuse, harm, and neglect 
  • To prevent the impairment of their mental and physical health and development
  • To take action to enable all people to have the best outcomes in learning, in work and in life. 

We are committed to supporting you to become a world-class safeguarding organisation. We do this by working with you to bring together the very best safeguarding technology and practice within a holistic environment that combines in-depth knowledge, CPD accredited training and expert consultancy.  

Our Safeguarding Credentials

We were founded by Former Senior Police Officers With Over 75 Years of Safeguarding Experience

Our products and services have been created and designed by safeguarding professionals with significant experience in the management of both adult and child safeguarding. Guided by our founding directors, we ensure that all of our solutions are in line with the most recent guidance and best practice in safeguarding and that we meet the needs of practitioners whatever the setting.

Our safeguarding training team has decades of combined experience working in policing, education (MATs, school governance, and teaching), local authorities, health, and social care. Consequently, we have a deep understanding and breadth of capability for both child and adult safeguarding at strategic and operational levels.

Created By A World Class Development Team

While we are predominantly a safeguarding company, we have an exceptional team of highly skilled IT professionals who bring their ingenuity and finely-tuned skills to develop our solutions.

They use feedback from customers, requirements from legislation, and suggestions from safeguarding practitioners to shape our secure and trusted safeguarding software. The Safeguarding Company is always improving to empower staff to provide the best outcomes for those in their care. 

We are immensely proud that in 2018 we were awarded a Queen's Award for Enterprise in the Innovation  category for our safeguarding recording solution - MyConcern. It is not an award for any one individual, it recognises the innovation that our whole team has brought to safeguarding and child protection. The Queen's awards are unarguably the most sought after and distinguished accolades that any organisation can receive and we are profoundly honoured to have been recognised in this way.  

As soon as our Safeguarding team had seen the software and recognised the integrity with which it has been designed, we immediately knew that this was a piece of software that would work for us.
