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.
