The Keeping Children Safe Certification scheme is for organisations working or coming into contact with children, who want to make sure they are meeting all child safeguarding standards and gain certification as ‘child safe’.
Keeping Children Safe promotes certification because it is the most effective way to help agencies achieve and demonstrate their commitment to keeping children safe. Keeping Children Safe is the only organisation that comprehensively covers all areas of child safeguarding.
The certification panel is drawn up of people from Comic Relief, AVIVA and Act for Peace
Certification is a 6-step process involving both self-assessment and external audit.
External verification by experts that child safeguarding measures are ‘fit for purpose’
Award of the Keeping Children Safe kite mark, a visible symbol of quality performance in child safeguarding
Demonstrate to donors, partners and the public, commitment and competence in the area of child safeguarding
Support to increasing quality, effectiveness and accountability in other areas across the organisation
The certification scheme is open to any organisation that works or has contact with children
