Faith Associates have been providing safeguarding training to faith communities for over 15 years. We have accredited trainers who go up and down the UK and around the world providing bespoke safeguarding training for faith institutions. In partnership with Birmingham City Council. we developed the official safeguarding guide for all faiths.

In partnership with the Birmingham City Council, the safeguarding team led by our CEO, Shaukat Warraicy, we developed a in depth safeguarding guide not just for the Muslim community but all faiths. All faith institutions face similar threats and dangers, we used our extensive interfaith network to work with all parts of the community in the development of the guide. The guide provides solutions for management to implement to ensure children and adults are protected in places of worship.

The completion of the guide resulted in a launch event in Birmingham with various partners. There was a diverse representation in the room of a variety of people in the community. The guide was sent across the UK to all places of worship as well as being placed online & has been downloaded over 3000 times. It is the go to guide for safeguarding for faith institutions.

I offer my gratitude to Faith Associates for their tireless but steadfast work and their continuous support and cooperation. The Beacon Mosque Project was a team effort and and together with FA we have achieved the success of gaining a star standard. Without their extended support and guidance we wouldn’t probably would not able succeed this achievement and be able to strive for excellence in our services, gaining the status we have today.
