Child Protection Training & Comprehensive Safeguarding Solutions
Welcome to the SAFE website. SAFEchild and SAFEadult, the specialists in child and adult safeguarding solutions, have combined and we are now SAFEcic. Safeguarding is everybody’s business and with child protection issues featuring prominently in recent news headlines, there has never been a more relevant time to increase the education on safeguarding children and vulnerable adults in this vitally important area. We are an expert, not-for-profit organisation offering a well-established, full range of high quality child protection training and other child and adult safeguarding courses. We carry professional indemnity insurance cover for all training we provide. SAFE’s primary sectors are education (including Early Years), health (including Dental Care Professionals, General Practice and Primary Medical Services and Optometrists) and in the private sector our customer base includes many of the UK’s largest leisure and entertainment provider companies. In fact SAFE has trained over 70,000 people so far!
SAFE also works extensively with the volunteer community, charitable organisations and faith groups as proceeds from our commercial activities are reinvested into driving our community initiatives to help further the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.
As SAFEcic is an "eligible body" delivering educational services, all of our training courses are VAT exempt.
