Safeguarding From Compliance to Justice.png

SAFEGUARDING: FROM COMPLIANCE TO JUSTICE

In recent years we have seen scandal, fear, reputational risk, and compliance act as key drivers for the development and review of safeguarding policies and practices. To truly transform our safeguarding approach we need to take a radical and critical look at our organizations and ourselves from the inside out. 

Our panel of safeguarding experts discuss centring our work on justice and moving towards prevention, protection, genuine compassion and agency.
