We have two pieces of very significant news!
We have just received written confirmation that we have Charity Commissioners Registration (No. 1150405) for Safe Families for Children in the UK. This has taken much longer to process than we anticipated but it is fantastic to get a charity number at last.
We also received written confirmation that the Middlesbrough Local Safeguarding Children’s Board have reviewed our Safe Families for Children manual and said that this is to ‘a very high standard’ and ticks all their boxes. Our team have worked very hard to ensure that the Safe Families USA Operational Manual is Anglicised and UK Local Authority compliant. Lindsay Tanner, our Safe Families Regional Policy Coordinator, has put hundreds of hours into this project so a big congratulations to her and big thank you for the incredible work. Thank you too to the many people who reviewed the documents and contributed to the shaping of the final submission.
I want to also thank our professional team who have helped us and particularly the growing army of volunteer partners who are praying for us and encouraging us on this journey.
