"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."
