Our Safeguarding Awards recognise, highlight, and celebrate the achievements of organisations in promoting and maintaining effective safeguarding practice. Our Awards showcase a whole organisational approach to embedding a culture of best in class safeguarding practice. Successful organisations are presented with a certificate of achievement, the Award logo for publicly display and a lanyard pin to wear with pride. Our awards are valid for one year only.
You will need to download the Award pack and complete the Evidence Matrix. When this is ready you will be able to send this off for assessment.
Each Award is assessed against four key principles: People, Practice, Policy and Principle. You will need to provide evidence as to how your organisation meets the criteria.
We welcome applications from charities, schools or other organisations wanting to demonstrate and celebrate their commitment to effective safeguarding practice.

It’s impossible to get safeguarding 100% watertight. The issues and the risks are developing all the time. However, at The Safeguarding Alliance we have found that rewarding and celebrating best practice helps to raise the bar and inspires other organisations to follow the lead. The selection process is rigorous, but the rewards for organisations and society as a whole make it worthwhile. An organisation is awarded based on the evidence provided at the time of application. If the organisation does not meet the award criteria a full refund will be issued.
