What our Customers say ....
Angela delivered the training session on basic safeguarding for adults to members of our Brampton Good Neighbour Scheme in May 2017 using the Safeguarding Toolbox. Not only was Angela extremely professional and knowledgeable, but she provided the training on a Saturday morning because that was the best time for our volunteers to be available. Angela quickly gained our attention and confidence, and conducted the training in a manner that was very appropriate to her audience, prompting good, involved debate and feedback. We all left the training session feeling much more knowledgeable and confident’’. Brampton Good Neighbour Scheme
The Safeguarding Toolbox training session on basic safeguarding for children and adults delivered by Angela was just what was wanted and covered a lot in a short space of time. This was an introductory session for our volunteers from all over the country. Angela very quickly engaged their interest and maintained this throughout. There was lots of discussion and opportunities to reflect on different aspects of safeguarding. It really made people think and question, as well as giving the volunteers more confidence in their peer support roles. It was also useful in prompting us as an organisation to look at our policies again.

Safeguarding Toolbox provides us with expert advice when required and delivers workshops for CCVS on Safeguarding Adults and Safeguarding Children and Young People. Angela’s courses are consistently rated as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’ by those attending. Comments from attendees:
The Wildlife Trust BCN have been using Angela to deliver all our safeguarding courses. Angela always provides an excellent support for us and is somebody we can always go to if we have any queries.
Angela is very professional, and committed to provide first class training for Safeguarding Children and Adults.
She delivers a hard-hitting subject in a knowledgeable and confident way, allowing interaction in the group as well as opportunities to ask questions throughout.
The attendees all reported that the session was informative, confidently delivered and that they all came away more aware of signs to be aware of , as well as identifying risks, when working with groups of Children and Adults.
I have no hesitation in recommending The Safeguarding Toolbox to our members for further, and on-going, training.
Angela came to our offices to train our staff in Jan 2018 - she was very flexible with our needs. She enables everyone ask questions throughout the training, and made it interactive to help people take in the information. She is very knowledgeable about the subject she trains in, and we would definitely book with her again - as we have done previously.
I booked ‘Safeguarding Toolbox’ to deliver our safeguarding children for our youth and children’s workers who come from a variety of backgrounds and learning styles, the feedback was very positive. The session was interesting interactive and kept everyone’s attention.’ (Adrian Woodbridge, Medway Centre Church, Huntingdon 20 June 2015)
In February 2014 Eddies (previously known as Cambridgeshire Mencap), requested a bespoke safeguarding Adults and Children training course. Here is what they had to say: Angela has been very professional from the start and provided us with an excellent bespoke training session which is tailored to our organisation. We are very pleased with the work that Angela has put in and we look forward to a longstanding working relationship.
Cruse is a Charity organisation which runs a small team of volunteers who support Children and Young People suffering from Bereavement. It is vital that we have Children's Safeguarding Training as the children we see are already very vulnerable. I had been struggling to find an Organisation who could deliver this training at a reasonable cost (as we are a Charity) and at a time that the whole team could be present. Angela agreed to come to our Supervision Group and work with the room and equipment that we had at our disposal. The Training was extremely well delivered and informative. Angela managed to get the important message across without making us all feel it was too onerous a responsibility. I am sure we all left feeling more confident and better equipped to deal with a difficult situation we would all rather not have to think about.
We have used the Safeguarding Toolbox at the Together Trust for about 3 years when she has delivered Warner Interviewing Skills and Safer Recruitment Training. Angela has been flexible in dealing with our requests. The sessions have been delivered well and she has taken on feedback from our delegates to improve the content and delivery style to suit what we need.
In June 2014 we invited Angela from the Safeguarding Toolbox to deliver training in 'Safeguarding Children' to museum volunteers responsible for front of house, tours, school visits and events. The training was well planned and administrated. Volunteers commented on Angela's extensive knowledge and experience as well as her friendliness and approachability. Everyone who took part has completed the course with more confidence and new ideas for making the museum a safer, more enjoyable environment for both visitors and volunteers.
Thank you Angela - we'll certainly be asking you to return to train a new cohort of volunteers in future!
Angela has worked jointly with East Cambridgeshire District Council to develop a corporate basic safeguarding training package. Her knowledge of the subject has been invaluable. The Council has now received confirmation that the training has been validated by the Local Safeguarding and Children’s Board and we have now rolled the training out to all employees. Angela not only supported development of the training, she has now also delivered this training to 184 staff in the subject and our evaluation indicates positive feedback from those who attended these sessions
