About Sarah

Sarah Henry smiling

I am the Company Director of Sarah Henry Safeguarding SHS. I am based at the Nostell Business Park where I have a specially designed nurturing training suite and facilities.

A qualified Youth and Community Worker, I have a proven track record in delivering high impact and quality safeguarding training to a variety of professionals in the Public and Third Sector. All my courses are very well evaluated and my testimonials always positive. My company is a DfE approved and accredited supplier of the Senior Mental Health Training course, and we have trained four cohorts of learners so far.

Informed by research, evidence and my own practice I write all of my own training courses on a bespoke basis. Driven by a passion to keep children and adults safe, I have worked within various safeguarding professions as a frontline practitioner and manager for over two decades.  Amongst my previous roles I established and managed one of the Integrated Early Help Hubs for Children and Young People in Castleford. This was in response to the Troubled Families Agenda and in collaboration with partners. It was a huge honour to serve as a public sector worker. I have taken all of my previous experience into my consultancy, where I continue to be committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing and mental health of children and adults at risk.

Through my training I hope to enable other professionals to deepen their understanding of the impact of abuse and trauma for children and highlight the need to always listen and respond to the voice of the child.

My company offers both mental health and safeguarding training and consultancy. I also provide workplace wellbeing/team development sessions with a particular focus on looking after our caring professionals own mental health and wellbeing, in order to keep them safe and well in work and at home.

I am an accredited MHFA England First Aider in Youth and an Instructor for the two day MHFA Youth course. I am passionate about early intervention to support our children and young people to be healthy, well and cared for in respect of their mental health. I have trained 475 mental health first aiders to date.

I am deeply committed to helping to improve the mental health of the nation.  I support the charity Andy’s Man Club and I spread the message wherever I go that #ITSOKTOTALK.

Last but definitely not least I am a Reiki and crystal healer and I deliver healing sessions at my special place at Nostell Priory in Yorkshire.
