Independent expertise in
safeguarding and care services

Welcome. We are independent safeguarding and care services specialists successfully working with many and varied organisations and Local Safeguarding Boards and Community Safety Partnerships across the UK. Operating for over ten years we have a well established reputation. We include some of the comments and testimonials from organisations that we work with on a separate page.

We do not aim to be the biggest organisation working with safeguarding and care services, but we do aspire to remain very good in the work and advice we provide. We keep our overheads low. We are passionate about helping practitioners, policy makers, managers and providers undertake some of the most difficult work in the UK. We have many years of valuable experience of working in services and partnerships.
