Our Safeguarding Services for children and young people
Our Safeguarding Services team are experienced consultants who have worked in and with multiple organisations across a number of settings such as schools, sport, early childhood sectors, recreation, child and family welfare, aged care, homeless services, disability services, family violence and child protection. We build strong partnerships that work for organisations and make a real difference to the safety children and young people you support and engage with.
We can provide any or all of the service activities at affordable cost with a proven track record in understanding and delivering outcomes on time. We bring with us the extensive experience of the rest of the Foundation’s established expertise in working with childhood trauma and vulnerable families. We are a recognised Registered Training Organisation with innovative learning platforms that meet the needs of all individuals regardless of their role in children.
Safeguarding Services are most widely known for our evidence-based Certification and Accreditation Programs. These initiatives are perfect for organisations that are pursuing the ultimate goal of embedding a strong child safe culture that not only meets compliance but also delivers real protection and support too all children and young people.
We offer practical and effective tools and resources for engaging children, young people and parents or carers in participatory processes that facilitate feedback and the co-design of service improvements.

The Social Impact of Safeguarding Services
Understanding the Social Impact of Safeguarding Services for Children and Young People: An evaluation for the Australian Childhood Foundation provides an overview of the Foundation’s impact with its partners in keeping children and young people safe. Conducted by the Centre for Social Impact, University of Western Australia, this was a unique study, grounded in qualitative research with organisations who have worked with the Foundation to build capacity and culture to better support the wellbeing and safety of children and young people who engage in their services.
Insights from the report demonstrated that the Foundation and its partners are helping to shape an Australian and global story of the evolution of safeguarding practice and impact. These insights are paving the way to an even deeper understanding of best practice in building a strong and lasting safeguarding culture in organisations, equipping leaders and practitioners to ensure that the children and young people in their care are
safe and valued.
