The Safer London team is knowledgeable, talented and most importantly, passionate about ensuring that every young Londoner has the chance to be the best they can be.

As an organisation we all work together to make positive, long lasting change for young Londoners, their families, peers and communities.

We take time to understand the contexts where violence and exploitation happen and are committed to embedding contextual safeguarding approaches. We understand that all the children, young people and families that access our services are likely to have experienced trauma and use our understanding of these experiences as the building blocks of support. Our work is shaped by the identities and experiences of those we work alongside.

In everything we do we:
  • prioritise creating safe and trusted relationships
  • celebrate and build on strengths
  • involve young Londoners in the shaping of our services and provide a platform for their voices to be heard
  • innovate, reflect, and commit to learning, we will hold our hands up when we get things wrong.
  • recognise we can’t know it all and support other professionals when another trusting relationship already exists.

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion:

At Safer London we value diversity and we’re committed to creating an inclusive culture. We know that in order to make London a safer place for the young people that live here, we need a diverse range of perspectives, experience and knowledge.

That’s why we encourage applications from all backgrounds and cultures. We welcome applications from minoritised communities, the LGBTQ+ community and individuals with disabilities (including hidden disabilities).

Our decisions are made by matching the skills and experience of applicants to roles, regardless of age, disability, gender, gender identity or reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.

Issues of racial justice are central to the work we do. We are fully committed to anti-racism and actively oppose systemic oppression of any form. We celebrate diversity and challenge inequality. As an organisation, we will proactively become part of the solution, since we are not prepared to sit back, do nothing, and be part of the problem.
