Safeguarding Association

The Safeguarding Association was set up by Kate Young, a former child protection lawyer, to work directly with individuals and lead child protection professionals within organisations to help them and their staff feel confident when working with children and young people and working with the child protection arena. Together we improve your child protection and safeguarding skills and knowledge through our online hub for ongoing training and support.

The Safeguarding Association Hub is a place where practitioners can come together, share ideas, best practice and gain support. Every month, this online community offers members training in wider safeguarding issues to develop their peripheral safeguarding vision and help them better protect young people and understand the issues facing them.

The Hub is ideal for those whose job includes safeguarding, like sports coaches, independent practitioners, youth leaders and guides. 

During her 15-year career in child protection, Kate has seen first hand how important safeguarding training is to children and young people, and the adults who work with them. Kate specialises in working with professionals who work with 15-25 year olds. They are a forgotten age range when it comes to social care involvement yet their needs are often as great as others younger.

Kate has been delivering training to child protection professionals, including senior leads, directors and governors for over 10 years. By ensuring those with overall responsibility have the right knowledge and skills, organisations can improve their ability to be preventative rather than reactive to child protection issues. In being proactive, organisations are better prepared to handle complex issues and swiftly act when matters escalate.
