Safeguarding


Is safeguarding a priority for your company?

Does your organisation have safeguarding policies and procedures in place?

The answer to both questions is probably ‘yes’, but are the measures you have put in place actually taking place? Are they practical? Are they working?

Let Joanna take a look at your safeguarding structure and visit your organisation to see how it works in practice. She has a wealth of experience of making safeguarding processes come alive so that your company will actually live and breathe safeguarding.

Contact Joanna today and let people know that you take safeguarding seriously.

If you work in film, television or theatre and are looking for a safeguarding adviser to work with you and/or child performers, contact Joanna today.

 

Workplace Culture


Are you one of the many organisations looking at developing a behavioural code for employees?

If so Joanna can help you do it. She is currently working with the Old Vic theatre on their innovative and unprecedented guardian programme. https://www.oldvictheatre.com/about-us/guardians-programme

Following on from this Joanna is now working with other organisations, developing similar guidelines and schemes.
Let Joanna help you become an organisation that is free from abuse, at all levels.

    Executive Director - The Old Vic

    "Joanna came to us highly recommended and, having worked with her over the past year on safeguarding and wider staff wellbeing initiatives, I can see why. Joanna carried out a safeguarding audit for The Old Vic in 2017 and her report was thorough and gave clear practical advice. So insightful was her advice that when launching our new Guardians initiative to support a healthy workplace culture, Joanna became a key part of the team.

    She carried out cultural awareness sessions (talking about what’s ok and what’s not ok in the workplace) for all staff, and now acts as a much trusted mentor for our Guardians, who she also trained. It is rare to find someone so experienced, sensitive, practical, and personable to work with. I would recommended Joanna without hesitation."

    CEO - Comic Relief

    "When I joined Comic Relief two years' ago, I prioritised a review of Comic Relief’s approach to safeguarding. We identified Joanna as an independent child protection/safeguarding specialist and from our very first engagements with her, we were confident we had found an expert to work with. Joanna undertook an end to end review of our existing approach to safeguarding and made excellent recommendations to tighten and improve our practices, which is now part of an ongoing process of constantly seeking to improve. She presented these improvements to management and trustees and kickstarted the work.

    In all, Joanna provided services to us for almost a year, and she undoubtedly left us in a better place with improved practices and a brilliant full time safeguarding expert she helped us employ. She was a pleasure to work with."

    “I first met Joanna several years ago when I attended a “Safeguarding Children” course. I am ashamed to say that my only expectation of the day was to tick some government boxes, but I left totally inspired by Joanna. She has so much expertise and experience in this field and has an unusually brilliant way of communicating that knowledge. She has since become a very respected work colleague and someone I feel privileged to have met.”

    CEO, Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children

    “The issues surrounding child protection are complex, but Joanna made it easy to absorb using her experience of working in the real world and her expertise, which helped us to implement the policy strategically. We needed to write policy, train and integrate the learning across very diverse groups of people from very different departments. Joanna genuinely cares about protecting children and you can see it in all she does, she provides clear and practical training, delivered with passion and commitment.”

    CEO Home-Start UK

    "Following Joanna's notable and well received contribution to our 2016 national convention, we invited her to carry out an independent review of our child protection activity. It was an insightful piece of work which will positively shape the future development of child protection activity at HSUK. I would recommend Joanna to other organisations looking to carry out similar pieces of work".
