Safeguarding in Faith

Total Safeguarding

Safeguarding challenges have never been more complex nor the legal duties of an organisation, its staff and volunteers more stringent. The number and range of safeguarding concerns now being handled in society have grown exponentially to include issues such as child sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, radicalisation, online bullying and e-safety issues. There has also been a significant increase in the number of young people experiencing complex mental health issues.

This creates an enormous responsibility for faith organisations and other groups in managing what can be extremely challenging and time-consuming issues. Issues which can have detrimental, life-long effects for those involved and which could result in other damaging consequences for both your staff and your organisation's reputation.

Safeguarding FAQs

Sadly, there are some establishments that must manage safeguarding and wellbeing concerns today in addition to taking steps to record, report and address historical allegations. Recently IICSA has highlighted concerns that in some organisations even basic child protection procedures are missing.

If these issues affect your organisation, speak to us to find out how we can help you improve your safeguarding credentials. 

We believe that successfully achieving high standards of professional safeguarding practice is founded on eight core principles that come together to create Total Safeguarding:

  • Strong leadership and management
  • A clear focus on harm prevention and reduction
  • Efficient recording and case management of concerns
  • Effective team working within and between individuals and organisations
  • Managing and sharing information securely, lawfully, and pro-actively
  • Securing professional and emotional support for your people, your teams and yourself
  • Being able to see the rich picture – understanding your data and developing insight
  • Learning lessons from your own professional practice and that of others.

The essential step to Total Safeguarding is to combine the practice of safeguarding with the very best technology - each is necessary, individually they are unlikely to meet the current safeguarding challenge. Together we can create everything you need for yours to be a world-class safeguarding organisation – one that protects children and adults and supports them to have the best outcomes in learning, in work and in life.
