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 the North of England. 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. 


January Update

Hello and may I take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business 
Safeguarding isn’t locked down
It has never been more important than it is right now especially with the lockdown measures that are in place.
I will be continuing to work throughout lockdown as safeguarding continues to be a national priority during lockdown. Some of my face-to-face training events have needed to be rescheduled to March 2021 and I am working hard to accommodate all requests to rearrange courses. 
I am still very much available for any consultation work and would be pleased to speak to you in regards your safeguarding training requirements.
I hope that throughout this difficult time we are all able to prioritise safeguarding children and young people and adults at risk of harm and abuse and exploitation. Please do remember how important it is to share information with the relevant agencies and report any concern you may have to the relevant authorities. 
The NSPCC can take your referral at any time if your concern is about a child 0808 800 5000 and please do not hesitate to contact the police on 999 if there is a danger to life.  Your local authority Adult Social Care department can take a referral about an Adult at risk of harm.
Stay safe and well and take care all.
