Introducing the Ann Craft Trust

At ACT we believe that every disabled child and every adult at risk deserves to be treated with the same respect and dignity as everyone else in society.

We are a leading provider of safeguarding training, consultations and serious case reviews working closely with organisations and individuals across the UK to raise awareness and improve practice. For over 21 years our independent research has tackled the biggest issues facing safeguarding, disabled children and adults at risk.

If you have any safeguarding concerns or would like to discuss how ACT can support your organisation please call our office on 0115 951 5400 or email

Our quarterly safeguarding bulletin is now available for free when you sign up to be an ACT supporter or through the website. To read July's bulletin (issue 92) please click here
