News & Events

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.

MHFA England Update

All of the courses provided by Sarah Henry SHS as a licenced trainer for MHFA England which were due to run in January 2021 have now be re-arranged to March 2021. Whilst this is disappointing, we are following the national guidelines in regards to the lockdown. For all pre-existing bookings you should now have received an email from me in regards to transferring your place.
I remain committed to delivering the Two Day MHFA Youth face-to-face course only when it is safe to do so, and to small groups of 7 participants.
I will be announcing more dates for the Summer and Autumn in due course so watch this space – alternatively please drop me an email and I can contact you directly as soon as I release my new dates.

Are you a Safeguarding Trainer?

Do you have your own Safeguarding Policy?

The people we train will always have a safeguarding policy and as Safeguarding Trainers we should too!

In recognition of this, I have written a fully researched and bespoke Safeguarding Policy designed specifically for organisations and individuals who deliver Safeguarding Training or Mental Health First Aid courses to the Public, Private and Voluntary Sector on a face-to-face basis.    

This policy is now ready and available for use as a licensed product by Sarah Henry Safeguarding Consultancy SHS Ltd.  The policy can also be licensed to Safeguarding Children Partnerships and Adult Safeguarding Boards for training purposes.

The policy meets a number of important functions.  It serves to safeguard both the trainer and/or training provider and all of the participants during a face-to-face safeguarding training session. It also includes step-by-step procedures to follow if a disclosure is made within a training session to the trainer by a participant about a child or adult at risk of harm.

Please get in touch to find out more.   I look forward to hearing from you and continuing to promote the message that ‘Safeguarding is Everyone’s Business’.
