Wales/Dorset based company honoured at Buckingham Palace for its ground-breaking safeguarding software.
Founding directors, Martin Baker QPM and Darryl Morton from One Team Logic today (Thurs 28th June) attended a Royal Reception held at Buckingham Palace and hosted by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. The makers of MyConcern®, safeguarding software were awarded the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for their services to safeguarding and the innovative solution which is a trusted and secure software solution for protecting children and vulnerable young people from harm.
They joined other elated recipients of the coveted Queen’s Awards (now in it’s 52nd year), who were invited to attend the prestigious event. Prince Charles took the time to individually congratulate the best of British business for their achievements in innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.
The MyConcern software was developed to assist people responsible for the wellbeing of the young and vulnerable (such as teachers) to be able to easily report and record concerns. With over 51,000 children in England/3000 children in Wales being identified as needing protection from abuse and with a sharp increase of in recorded sexual offences against children, these are issues that schools and colleges are often the first to be made aware of.1
The system can also cater for spotting signs of young people experiencing complex mental health issues, including self-harm. It enables schools, colleges and other organisations to record and manage safeguarding issues such as bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic, abuse and gender-based violence relating to children, young people and vulnerable adults.
One Team Logic was founded in 2014 and has since created almost 50 jobs in South Wales, as well as 14 others across the rest of the UK.
Martin Baker QPM, Managing Director for One Team Logic said:
“We are honoured that the work of our whole team has been recognised by Her Majesty the Queen through the conferring of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise. For the innovation that we have brought to safeguarding and child protection to be recognised in this very public way is both humbling and extremely gratifying.
“Given the challenges facing schools and colleges we believe that the use of MyConcern is not only transforming the way safeguarding is being managed but is also helping to support school leaders and other members of staff in their vital role as safeguarding practitioners. As a safeguarding company, we are proud to work alongside so many schools and colleges across the UK, supporting them in keeping children safe from harm.
