Customer In-house Training

"The Y has engaged Holistic Safeguarding to embed safeguarding best practice into our organisational culture. This has included reviewing policy, frontline training, as well as Trainer for Trainer sessions. Kim Dickinson is a knowledgeable and dynamic trainer, and training sessions have been well received by our staff.  Working with Kim and Holistic Safeguarding has ensured that our organisation is on the best path to create a child-safe organisation."

Without qualitative learning and development, organisational safeguarding efforts can remain theoretical. Safeguarding and protection learning enables staff to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to implement their safeguarding roles, responsibilities and the organisation's expectations. Whether for their staff, the sectors they lead or both, we support many organisations with their safeguarding learning needs. We make sure all our learning support:

  • Reflects a holistic approach. We are child/adult centred in our practice but safer organisation focused. This safeguards everyone – children/adults, staff and the organisation.

  • Is tailored support, so customers receive the support that best serves their needs. We work to what a customer needs, not to what is available. If we don't already have something that can be tailored to our customers, we create it. Nothing is off-the-shelf.

  • Promotes and encourages safeguarding self-sustainability where possible.

Some Examples of In-house Support

With each organisation, their needs and their resources being different, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. We help organisations in many different ways, from internal bespoke briefings, training and/or events, to developing safeguarding and protection eLearning courses and/or webinars for customers.


Like many customers, the Halberg Foundation started its safeguarding journey by exploring its safeguarding needs and developing a safeguarding action plan. This captured identifying staff's training needs and learning support structures. Which we could support via our Safeguarding Children with Additional Needs eLearning and Named/Designated Person eLearning, as well as other learning options.
