Sarah Henry Safeguarding SHS

A Unique, Survivor-Led and Professionally-Informed Safeguarding Consultancy
Delivering the Highest Quality Safeguarding Training Courses and Mental Health First Aid England Courses
Because ‘Safeguarding is Everyone’s Responsibility’


Hello, my name is Sarah and I am an Independent Safeguarding & Wellbeing Trainer and Consultant based in Yorkshire. I am also a Licensed Mental Health First Aid Instructor for Mental Health First Aid England.  

I offer safeguarding training to the public, private and third sectors, to enable practitioners and managers to keep children, young people and adults at risk safe and protect them from harm.  My understanding of safeguarding enables me to deliver high quality, easy-to-understand bespoke training and awareness-raising sessions on a range of different safeguarding themes to multi-agency audiences.   

I deliver face-to-face training only, as I believe in offering only the highest quality training.  All of my courses are very well evaluated.

Happy New Year

This year promises to be a busy one and I am really looking forward to delivering lots of training and will begin with a MHFA England course shortly.

My MHFA England January course is now full but I do have some remaining spaces available on my March course on 10th and 11th.  This will be held at my lovely training suite at Nostell Priory and lunch and unlimited refreshments will be provided.  Do let me know if you would like to attend by emailing me

The Senior Mental Health Lead training course at Nostell Priory is also now open for bookings – this is a unique opportunity to attend a course which is fully funded and assured by the DfE.  Just get in touch if you would like to know more or head the Government website here.

It almost goes without saying that I will be delivering as much safeguarding training as I possibly can throughout the year.  If you need any help with keeping up to date with yours just drop me a line. 

I would like to thank my little team around me for everything they will be helping me with to run the business again as I move into year 4 – wow! where does time go? – they really are my unsung heroes and without them I would be lost.  So thankyou to my amazing VA, Madeleine, and my accountant, Steve, and my wonderful network of associates – I am so honoured to work with you all.

Wishing you all well, for 2022 and beyond, Sarah.
