Northern Hub for Safeguarding

The Northern Hub for Excellence and Innovation in Child and Adult Safeguarding undertakes multi-method research that aims to optimize the life chances of children and adults who experience a range of vulnerabilities and who often have multiple and complex needs.

Pivotal to the work of members of the Hub, is the exploration of legal, social justice, policy and practice issues that impact on the lived experiences of a range of individuals throughout the life course. Members of the Hub are passionate about achieving change for individuals by seeking innovative ways of working. The Hub is multi-disciplinary; it is our aim to seek holistic approaches to working with both children and adults, especially when they turn to a system at times of crisis and when they are most in need.
