Below are a selection of testimonials from some of our satisfied clients. Safe Haven Consulting Ltd would like to say a big 'thank you' for your kind words!


  • Wignton Infants

    Helen Shingler, SENDCo Deputy Head teacher (DDSL), Wigton Infant School

    In case I do not again have the opportunity to attend a Safe Haven Training or Event, I would like to take this personal opportunity to thank you both. I have attended training with yourselves since 2012. The 5 year Safe Haven Anniversary Conference at Rheged resonates personally and professionally with me to this day and will be part of my Safeguarding practice and perceptions forever. You are both outstanding in your field, you really are. You pull us all into shape, shake us up, re enlighten, advise and update us; sending us back to further improve the Policy and day to day provision, vigilance and care in our settings. The training I have received from you colours not just my carrying out my school roles but my personal life too – it is in my head - even when I’m away on holiday with my family. I wouldn’t have it any other way. This is thanks implicitly to the ‘pair of you’. I hear your respective voices saying key phrases in my head at pertinent times in my work with children and parents. Truly. Thank you both very much. I am very grateful for the knowledge, ability and understanding you have provided to and instilled in me in my day to day care of children and young people. I hope – and am sure – that Safe Haven will continue to grow from strength to strength.
  • bekstone-primary

    David Warbrick, Headteacher, Beckstone Primary School

    Safe Haven Consulting have been invaluable in helping the school ensure that it has high quality policies and procedures for safeguarding and that all staff training is up to date. We now have a regularly reviewed Safeguarding Action Plan, audited policies, receive informative and up to date training and have the re-assurance of accurate and supportive advice at the end of a phone. We would highly recommend them as a service for any school.

    Willie Slavin, Chair, Howgill Family Centre

    Safer Recruitment Training - Certification Safe Haven Consulting Ltd. I attribute my certification to the excellent training I received and will happily endorse Safe Haven Consulting as a first class provider in this critical area.
  • bransty primary

    Joanne Fearon, Headteacher, Bransty Primary School - West Cumbria

    Yet again we have had excellent delivery of training from Safe Haven Consulting. The subject knowledge of both Diane and Jeanette is exceptional but what makes it even better is that it is delivered in a very clear and informative way - they are able to address sensitive issues for the differing awareness levels of staff - from the most experienced to newly appointed staff. We feel very confident our practice is in place and would recommend the services provided to others. Many thanks to you both!
  • Ashfield Infant & Nursery School

    Rachel Field, Headteacher, Ashfield Infant & Nursery School - West Cumbria

    Safe Haven Consulting have been providing outstanding safeguarding training to schools and providers throughout our area for several years. In my opinion, children in our county are undoubtedly safer due to their commitment, passion and determination to raise awareness. As a Head teacher, I feel that the culture and ethos in my school has been transformed due to the training my staff receive from Jeanette, Diane and their team. I always come away from their training days with a renewed commitment to improving my own practise and with a deepened understanding of the complex role of Designated Safeguarding Lead in schools. Safe Haven Consulting offer an extremely rigorous training experience but in a non-threatening and inclusive way. Their Safer Recruitment and Prevent training has had a direct impact on the way my own organisation operates.
  • qestudio

    Alison Wilkinson FCCT, Principal of Queen Elizabeth Studio, The Lunesdale Learning Trust

    I honestly believe that Diane and Jeanette have done more to raise the standards of safeguarding in Cumbrian schools that any other agency . I’ve been coming along to their sessions from the very beginning – and so have many of my colleagues- and I’ve seen the impact in my school without a doubt. Thank goodness you gave us Safe Haven: you have done so much to support our safeguarding work in schools. Please keep going. We need you.
  • maryport-infants

    Tina Beddoe, Headteacher, Maryport Infants School

    The staff found the Safer Working Practice training extremely useful. It really opened their eyes to their practice outside school and how this could be viewed. I would recommend the training to any school - in fact I think every school should take part as I am sure not everyone is aware of the guidance and the implications for schools. The staff were also very complimentary about the style of delivery - they liked the straightforward and direct approach and said the three hours flew by!
