Safeguarding information point

Safeguarding information point

Welcome to LSTM’s Safeguarding Information Point (SIP).  This is a resource/training point that all organisations can freely access.

The resources and training links are grouped under some key headings to help you find information quickly.

If you have some useful resources in your organisation that you’d like to share, we’d be happy to add them to this information point, we are particularly interested in adding resources from our global partners across the world. 

Please email us with any examples you would like to share to:
