Safeguarding - Learning The Lessons From Savile

Sancus Solutions Ltd
Delivery Method: Face-to-face

The primary objective of this workshop is to help managers and staff to create a professional environment in which all are safe, valued and able to work to their full potential, supported by structures and processes in which all have confidence and which enable concerns and complaints to be dealt with effectively.

The sexual abuse perpetrated by Savile went on for over five decades and took place in organisations that extend the length and breadth of the country. Savile’s abuse was often opportunistic but, on many occasions, he conspired with others and carefully planned his offending.

Learn what safeguarding structures, managerial curiosity and staff education are necessary in modern organisations to prevent abusers from seizing opportunities to thrive.

Savile was a malevolent and manipulative man who cultivated relationships and abused the power that he held over people to facilitate his abuse. He was often reckless in his actions to the point where he could have been brought to justice many times. The investigations into his behaviour provide us with a hugely valuable opportunity to understand why this was not the case and how we can achieve safe working environments, where people can work in safety, free from the fear of abuse.
