In this interview, Ann Marie Christian discusses some of the safeguarding issues that all types of settings may be having to think about, including:
• Safeguarding advice if you are recently reopened
• Safeguarding priorities for all practitioners in all types of settings
• The role of the Designated Safeguarding Lead
Ann Marie has been delivering keynote speeches and workshops at national conferences since 2001 and since 2010 Ann Marie has independently supported hundreds of organisations in strengthening their safeguarding agenda.
She participated in a pilot project in 1999 as a social worker based in a school in an Inclusion Team. It was a successful project and the exclusion rate reduced by a third in the first term. The project received Beacon Status and was invited to various conferences to talk.
She’s an associate for various organisations including the NSPCC and many more.
Ann Marie is the safeguarding officer for her local parish and delivers annual training to the volunteers. She sits on the church Safeguarding Committee who meet quarterly.
