Your self-assessment

Every organisation needs to think about the implications of their work, and the safety of the children they are working with, or for. Are you sure your organisation is not putting children at serious risk of abuse?

Our free, no-obligation self-assessment is a powerful tool that helps you gain a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of your organisation’s child safeguarding implementation. This is the first step of a journey that will enable your organisation to implement the best and most appropriate child safeguarding measures.

You will learn that, while the development of strong safeguarding policies is essential, this is just the start of a much deeper process of self-reflection, engagement, leadership and accountability that will get your organisation to a point at which it can start to embed robust safeguarding systems and processes within its working culture.

How it works

The self-assessment tool consists of five sections and takes about 30 minutes to complete. The results will be emailed to you with advice about actions you may need to take to ensure children are kept safe. Your results are confidential, but if you would like to discuss the results, please do get in touch with our team.

During the self-assessment, you will be asked to think about four different aspects of your organisation. These are based on the four International Child Safeguarding Standards: policy, people, procedures and accountability. To strengthen your organisation’s safeguarding practices, policies and culture, you should review the lessons learned from this self-assessment as soon as possible.
