The Safeguarding Association Members Hub is the heart of our organisation. I support independent practitioners, like you, within the family justice system who are busy, overstretched and time poor, keep up to date easily through online CPD and support for difficult and often complex child protection situations
The Members Hub is for you if you want easy support, simple updates and more time to spend with your own family than dealing with crises and overwhelm of others.
The Safeguarding Association Training Academy has a range of courses to suit your needs and will help ensure your work is of the highest standard and significantly reduce the adverse scrutiny of your work.
Our courses are for practitioners in the child protection arena. We have a range of open and bespoke in-house programmes available.
Supervision often focusses on cases rather than the emotiaonl issues which arise form complex cases.
I support professionals by providing a safe space to grow their capacity for complex case analysis & to engage in the ongoing learning process by developing their skills and knowledge at a higher level.
