Project Workers & Staff

SAFE! Project Workers & Practitioners

SAFE! Practitioners and Project Workers hold professional qualifications in areas such as in social work, teaching, youth work, probation or an equivalent and have a lot of experience of direct work with children and young people. We have a mixture of employed staff and freelance practitioners.  

Practitioners receive both group and individual supervision and training on a regular basis and an enhanced Criminal Record Bureau check is a requirement of the role. SAFE! are committed to supporting Practitioners within their roles and working to best practice standards. Practitioners have a wide range of skills and are matched with new referrals into the project according to their areas of expertise where possible.
