Verita (with senior associate Kate Lampard) was commissioned by the Secretary of State for Health to undertake the independent investigation into lessons learned into historic child abuse matters relating to Jimmy Savile. We undertook similar work for the Department for Education. We therefore have a great deal of knowledge and experience of the issues and difficulties inherent in this area.
Following on from the Savile work, we produced a checklist for organisations to help them determine if they have taken all possible steps to safeguard children. NHS England subsequently asked all NHS bodies to complete it.
You can see the checklist here.
If we can help with your work in this area, please get in touch.
