About Us

We provide training courses, consultancy and e-learning for practitioners, professionals and volunteers working with children, young people and families.

Safeguarding Children Training and Consultancy Ltd has been delivering services on a range of safeguarding children issues to practitioners working with children and their families across the UK for over 12 years.

Our courses are practice based, motivational and inspiring. Participants receive a robust and effective learning experience which helps them learn new information and skills and reflect on, develop and enhance their existing practice. Our clients include social care, health, education, early years’ services, youth services, the police, probation, voluntary services, charitable organisations, and two national regulatory ombudsmen. We also work in partnership with organisations such as NSPCC, Basis Yorkshire, Safe and Sound Enterprises (Derby), Reed Global, Child Protection Training UK and several Local Safeguarding Children Boards.

Our training and consultancy starts from the core principles of helping our clients develop best professional standards that focus on achieving positive outcomes; and developing innovative ways of delivering services that makes a difference to the families and children that they work with. We have a consistently high evaluation record, with many clients returning to us year after year for further training and consultancy services. Take a look at our testimonial page to see what some of our clients have said about us.
