Welcome to Holistic Safeguarding

Safeguarding You to Safeguard Children

Risks surrounding child safety are not exclusive to a child’s personal environment. Risks of harm and child abuse can and do occur within organisations supporting children and their families. 

Being the only New Zealand provider with the internal expertise that has led New Zealand services through child safety accreditation and best practice models, we are specialists in supporting organisations through their safeguarding and child protection responsibilities. Our holistic child-centred approach ensures child safety needs for children, staff, and the organisation are aligned to all safeguarding solutions and a safeguarding culture. 


Whether you are looking to set the foundations for safeguarding accreditation, demonstrate best practice, or wish to be confident in knowing you are meeting your child protection requirements qualitatively, we can help.

Some of Our Many Happy Customers

Child Safe Organisations 

We are delighted to be working with Holistic Safeguarding in updating our organisations Safeguarding and Child Protection Policies, procedures and developing a culture of safeguarding within New Zealand Golf and across golf as a sport.


My knowledge of this area was low, but the friendly and supportive approach from Holistic Safeguarding has made this work simpler and easier to understand.


We are thrilled with the products and e-learning that has been tailormade to our organisation and sport and highly recommend Holistic Safeguarding to other sports and organisations who wish to commit to their responsibility and role in safeguarding and child protection.

It was a pleasure to work with Holistic Safeguarding. They accommodated our staff, with times to suit us, and the course was interactive and interesting. I will be looking forward to doing other courses with Holistic Safeguarding.

I came into today feeling it was going to be a very ho-hum boring full day on child safety. I couldn't have been more wrong! It was a great way to learn and understand the NZ way of child protection.

In-house Safeguarding and Child Protection Training 


At Lulu and Max, all staff complete child protection training. We've used other companies in the past and recently came across Holistic Safeguarding.


Our team has found this course extremely informative, with content relevant to NZ. It incorporated Te Reo Māori and delves into important information pertinent to the course.

The price is affordable, particularly compared to other online courses and especially given the depth of course knowledge provided.

The Sport and Recreation Safeguarding Toolkit offered by Holistic Safeguarding is a great way for organisations to bring their safeguarding practices up to good practice. We invested heaps of time, money and energy - including undertaking a benchmarking process in 2018 with an overseas provider and ended up developing much of what is in the toolkit. Having the toolkit available to us would have fast-tracked our improvements to our safeguarding culture.
