Child protection and safeguarding consultancy
The bespoke nature of our work means that no 2 projects are the same. Our consultants draw on their knowledge, skills and experience to meet the needs of diverse organisations, settings and circumstances.

Our work with Liberty Mutual Insurance
Liberty Mutual Insurance (LMI) is an international insurance company. They insure a number of organisations in the UK that provide services for children, such as education and sports.
LMI provide an insurance policy which offers an indemnity to the Insured if an allegation of abuse is made and compensation to the victim(s) if the Insured is found to be negligent.
LMI recognised the need for a different solution to be brought forward by the insurance industry and a level of responsibility of duty of care to children. What was being proposed was unique to the insurance world, and LMI were keen to work with us to create a cohesive and responsive solution.
What people say about our consultancy service
"The NSPCC's involvement demonstrated to the students, parents and staff how seriously we take the whole (safeguarding) area. The NSPCC's work, including the self-evaluation, was focused and professional. And the whole experience was reassuring and excellent value."
Robin Street, UCL Academy
"Prior to our involvement with the NSPCC we primarily thought safeguarding was about vetting checks, but we've come to appreciate it's much broader than that. The NSPCC's been ultra-professional in their approach, always delivered on time, listened to our needs and our challenges and negotiated with us to reach safeguarding solutions that fit our business needs."
Paul Wright, Carnival UK
"The partnership with NSPCC was very positive. Not only did they provide us with a professional service, but also they were able to answer queries which were probably outside of the brief. But nevertheless, because they have the expertise, they were very willing to support us."
Charles Shaw, Tomorrow's People
"We arranged a meeting, two of their consultants came into the office, and I explained what I was trying to achieve. They got it from day one."
