HL Safeguarding: A specialist international safeguarding consultancy
The physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect of children and young and vulnerable adults is a reality every organization must do everything possible to eradicate.
However, many organisations operating in the charity and not for profit sector do not necessarily understand the true risks associated with their activities or collaborative partnerships, especially abroad. Many lack the necessary skills and/or expertise required to consistently safeguard and promote the welfare of children and vulnerable and ‘at risk’ individuals that their staff or contractors will encounter, or how to respond effectively should concerns be voiced or accusations be made.
HL Safeguarding is a specialist safeguarding consultancy designed to provide charities, religious orders and NGOs operating either within the UK or internationally with exactly this support.
Our extensive experience has also taught us that if we are going to have the impact we should on human rights, the protection of children and other vulnerable people, we need to be highly effective in:
Delivering a safe and sustainable environment for the organisations we work with in the UK and overseas.
Co-ordinating and leading complex audits, improvement projects
Working closely with governments, ministries, their advisors, and established NGOs, particularly in remote and challenging areas.
Improving local child protection cultures, structures, and protective processes alongside leading human rights agencies.
