Who We ARE

At the Child Safe Foundation we put the children and young people we work for at the heart of everything we do.

The Child Safe Foundation is a nationally registered youth empowerment charity based in London, where we work to empower and improve the lives of children and young people.

Our work is across various areas, with young people primarily, but also with other charity organisations, training/consultancy, and renovating abandoned properties to house the homeless. We work to promote and protect the rights of some of the most vulnerable young people in the UK and Ireland. In our 10 years as an organisation we have worked with many different groups of young people including young carers, LGBT groups and individuals, black and minority ethnic children and young people with mental health issues to create effective campaigns that champion the rights of those most affected by policies and services. We work with all young people to help them realise the power of their own voices and become empowered, active citizens.

We also work with organisations across the city and the country to make sure that young people are served in a meaningful and impactful way by their schools, public services and communities.

If you are a school, individual, community group or local authority looking for training and consultancy around work with young people, you can buy our training packages here.

Child Safe Foundation’s purpose is to promote the rights, wellbeing and opportunities of all young people across the UK and Ireland.

We do this by:

Working with young people to campaign around issues that affect them.

Working with organisations and schools to increase meaningful participation of young people in strategic decisions.

Working with community services and local authorities to ensure that young people’s rights are protected and that their best interests are served.

Working in partnership with other charities, NGOs and organisations to deliver work which has a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable young people.

Training organisations and individuals to increase and improve the services available to young people in need of support and information.

What is Empowerment?

Youth empowerment is a process in which children and young people are encouraged to take charge of their own lives. They do this by addressing their situation and the taking action in order to improve their access to resources and transform their consciousness through their beliefs, values and attitudes.

“CSF has positively influenced my life by giving me an insight into the organisational structures and decision-making processes for health and social care services. As a young carer myself, it has been incredibly important for me to be able to shape these services and ensure the views of other young carers are represented on a strategic level.” – Karen Southfield, 17 member of CSF Voices (views of young carers) Group

Over the last 10 years the Child Safe Foundation has worked with thousands of young people in London and across the country. We take a holistic approach to working with young people and believe that involving them in decision making in a meaningful way is both beneficial to the young people themselves and society as a whole.
