How we made a difference
How people rated our services
I was amazed by the support i received by all staff who put me at ease and couldn’t have asked for anything more.
It’s our number one priority.
Our long-established expertise enables us to respond effectively to the ever-changing needs of young people and vulnerable adults. As Brook’s services expand, so too does the complexity and level of vulnerability that we encounter. In 22/23, the most frequently raised safeguarding concerns related to mental health (38%), followed by those involving sexual abuse (19%).
We have strengthened our support for vulnerable service users accessing emergency hormonal contraception and pregnancy testing. We have also established a Safeguarding Solution Forum to utilise the skills and talents of our workforce and enhance our systems.
By streamlining our safeguarding processes, we have increased capacity and offered greater manager support, guidance and oversight. As a result, our staff can navigate safeguarding episodes with increased confidence and focus, ensuring that we continue to protect people of all ages with diligence and sensitivity.
We relaunched our nationally recognised and respected Spotting the Signs tool, following its redevelopment in consultation with young people and professionals. The new toolkit is a valuable resource for professionals working with young people under 18 and is designed to enhance their ability to recognise and respond to child sexual exploitation and child criminal exploitation.
