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.
