Local Authority Safeguarding

Total Safeguarding

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 governance, 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.

Why Your Local Authority Needs Safeguarding Software

Safeguarding challenges are rapidly growing in importance for local authorities as legal duties and responsibilities increase. Local authorities now have to deal with a growing number of different issues such as child sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation, radicalisation, county lines and modern slavery.

Mental health is now an issue of community relevance, meaning local authorities have responsibility to manage and protect those who are unwell. As the responsibilities for local authorities mature, so must the processes and software behind them.
