We identify needs and provide a bespoke service to external agencies in Northern Ireland across a broad range of sectors, including statutory, voluntary and commercial.

Our aim is to raise awareness of child protection and safeguarding issues for organisations and explore with them the steps that can be taken to improve policies, standards and practice. This could be through structural, policy or procedural changes, and may involve practice reviews or audits. We also work with organisations following a critical incident where circumstances have led to the potential harm or actual harm of a child.
