Welcome to Holistic Safeguarding
At Holistic Safeguarding, we know organisations want to be organisations that safeguard - children, staff and the organisations. However, knowing how to achieve this can be the challenge. A safeguarding culture is the biggest safeguard for tamariki and rangatahi, staff and the organisation. We can help you be a safe organisation that reflects a safeguarding culture.
Aotearoa remains in the top 5 developed countries for child maltreatment. There is no part of New Zealand’s children and adult workforce sectors immune from risks relating to:
Failing to identify and/or respond to those children/young people who may be suffering from adverse or abusive experiences.
Having organisational and workforce failings that could enable adverse and/or abusive experiences to occur from within the organisation.
Engaging or employing someone who may be unsafe to be around children/young people.
Achieving safeguarding solutions that enable a safeguarding culture is not as complex as it may seem. We can make sure you get solutions tailored to your needs. With solutions reflecting a holistic approach and implementation taking a step-by-step proportionate approach. Organisations may share the same legal and/or ethical safeguarding requirements. However, adoption and implementation must be proportionate to that organisation’s needs, scope, resources and abilities.
We guide you through this, helping you strengthen key safeguards and develop your safeguarding culture. All in a manner that is cost-effective and advocates self-sustainability where possible. Enabling your safeguarding steps to become part of everyday thinking and practice, and your safeguarding culture becoming part of your business as usual. We help you become a safe organisation, who safeguards everyone.
