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. 


May Update

We are delighted to have recently moved offices and become a tenant of the Barnsley BIC: The Business Village.   We have also now met with some of the team to explore training options at the venue.   Sarah Henry Safeguarding are pleased to offer their first MHFA England Youth two day course at their offices in July.  We are certain this will be the first of many.

Mental Health First Aid England courses continue to be very popular throughout the towns and cities we serve and places are in high demand. If you would like to become a Mental Health First Aider for children aged 8-18 please get in touch to discuss booking your place.

Wellbeing packages are also now available and more details can be found here. These are exclusive and unique to SHS and we are pleased to be able to bring peace and tranquility into your workplace to promote a sense of wellbeing in your teams.  We know what works and we know how to look after you through these uncertain times.

Safeguarding of course continues to be our priority and we are pleased to have been able to deliver vital safeguarding training during lockdown as an essential part of key working.  Sarah continues to offer only face-to-face courses due to the sensitivities of the discussions.  Please get in touch to discuss your training requirements.

Sarah is pleased to be able to support a number of charities.  Last year’s chosen charity was STAR Bereavement in Wakefield and we will be offering them some free safeguarding training later this month now that we can. 

Stay safe everyone
