Mindful Practice works with leaders and managers in child protection to change the lives of disadvantaged children and families. We specialise in working with senior teams in preparation for an integrated inspection or single agency inspection and implementing recommendations following an inspection. We also work with Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) following a serious case review or ‘near miss’ to co-design and implement sustainable, high quality learning and improvement frameworks that are directly linked to multi-agency improvement priorities.

We help you engage with your strengths to become mature, confident, and ambitious leaders dedicated to sustaining improvements in the lives of children, young people and families in your local area. We develop your skills in effective and visible leadership; where you can offer rigorous yet ‘safe’ challenge to colleagues, and act on similar feedback yourself. We support you and your colleagues to make an enduring impact on the quality of professional practice in your local area.


Benefits of our approach

We offer a unique ‘support and challenge’ approach to leadership development, coaching and reflective practice. We ensure the whole system reflects this ethos so that quality outcomes for children are achieved in a rigorous, solution-focused, learning culture throughout the organisation. Our consultancy practice integrates theoretical approaches commonly referred to in leadership development, systemic practice and mindfulness with the family of action research methodologies, namely action learning, action inquiry and action research.
