Safeguarding

Our expert safeguarding team are committed to working with organisations to ensure that they operate to a consistently high standard, create and maintain an environment and culture that is free from violence, abuse or exploitation. We believe in the importance of a proactive and preventative approach within organisations as this is undoubtedly the best way to minimise the risk of such harm from occurring as well as the associated reputational damage and crisis.

We work closely with a diverse range of organisations within and outside the United Kingdom such as:

  • Schools;
  • Sports organisations;
  • Professional membership bodies;
  • Charities;
  • Non-Government Organisations (NGO’s)
  • Religious organisations;
  • Further or higher education providers;
  • Community based corporations; and
  • Private sector companies, who are keen to create and enhance a sustainable safeguarding environment
  • Donor/Philanthropic Safeguarding Services

We provide added value to the work and thought leadership of these organisations and the communities or sections of society they serve through innovative and adaptable safeguarding solutions.

Our extensive and specialist expertise and experience is dedicated to helping these organisations achieve and maintain a safe organisational culture that is completely aligned to the organisation’s values, best practice and the applicable legal framework.

We recognise that the legal duties of an organisation may sometimes conflict with safeguarding best practice. We help organisations to explore these and other issues and provide guidance and support on the best approach in balancing and managing these competing demands.

For further information on our bespoke and highly specialised Safeguarding consultancy, HL Safeguarding, the services we offer and how we can assist and enhance your organisation, please follow this link and see here for LinkedIn.

If you have any questions re the above, please contact Rebekah French or Dominik Opaliński, who is noted in The Legal 500 as being “in constant demand in relation to issues pertaining to safeguarding issues and has a substantial case-load dealing with child welfare matters.”
