Public-private partnerships

Winner: Bradford MDC: Real Safeguarding Stories

Real Safeguarding Stories is a public-private sector partnership between Bradford MDC and Collingwood Learning. The partnership places the stories of survivors and victims of abuse at the heart of training and awareness around safeguarding. A free online bank of videos tell their stories, covering topics from child sexual exploitation to scams and domestic violence. The videos have been used by professionals across the country 8,500 times in two years. The partnership has an innovative business model achieving sustainability with minimal investment.
