Our Vision

To always be there when young people need us and to prevent exploitation wherever and however, we can.

Our Mission

To transform the lives of children and young people in Derbyshire who are affected by child exploitation. We all have an idea of what being safe and sound is but the reality for many young people is very far from that. At Safe and Sound we are passionate that every child should live a life without exploitation but sadly still many are affected and far from safe. That’s why we will work to prevent, support and help rebuild lives to a point where we are no longer needed, no matter how long that takes.

Key Values

Safe Values:

We build open, honest and equitable relationships with children, young people and families.

We manage risk to create a safe space for children, young people and families to build stronger resilience and positively move forward with their lives.

Sound Values:

We listen and value the views and opinions of children, young people and families – empowering them to have a voice.

We are trusted supporters and advocates for children, young people and families.
