Working collectively to prevent abuse and harm

Safeguarding those in our society who are vulnerable is everyone’s responsibility. Working collectively with others is absolutely key to protecting people from harm, because it’s only by getting a full picture through everyone who comes into contact with a situation that we can make the right decisions.


We prioritise collective working when supporting individuals and their families through a case, and by contributing to furthering safeguarding practice as a society. We:

  • have clear lines of communication with the local authority and organisations we work with
  • take positions of responsibility in local safeguarding panels and boards
  • actively seek out ways to learn from colleagues in other organisations and continually develop best practice
  • reflect deeply on aspects of safeguarding and share our reflections to generate discussion among peers
  • offer consultancy and run training sessions to up-skill professionals in other organisations
