We knew that we were working with ambitious timeframes but the Kainos team did an excellent job

- Kainos praised for successful, timely delivery of the NSPCC’s National Safeguarding Unit for the Third Sector website-

London & Dublin – July 29th , 2009 – Kainos (, a leading IT consulting company, has today announced that its project to build the website behind the NSPCC’s National Safeguarding Unit for the Third Sector, has been a great success, meeting the expectations and delivery timeframes to support the site’s high-profile launch last month.

In January this year the government announced that it had given the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) more than two million pounds to ensure voluntary groups and charities protect children effectively. The NSPCC, working with Children England, set out to create a set of child protection standards and then support the voluntary sector in meeting those standards. It created a safeguarding unit to deliver information and advice both online and over the phone. The contract to build the website to support the new National Safeguarding Unit was awarded to Kainos.

Kainos has established a strong reputation and growing skill-set on projects delivering Microsoft Office SharePoint™ (MOSS)-based solutions. In the past month alone SharePoint solutions built by Kainos at Dublin City Council and Ireland’s national broadcaster, RTÉ, have both received very positive media coverage.
The NSPCC’s search for a company to build its new content management-driven website also stipulated MOSS as the underlying technology platform making Kainos the perfect delivery partner. In February this year, following a public tender procurement, Kainos was awarded the contract and began to work on a challenging timeframe to launch the website within three months.

Working in close collaboration with the NSPCC and its design agency, Razorfish, Kainos has delivered the project on-time, to specification and has received high praise for its approach and work ethic throughout. “This is an outstanding achievement,” said John Brownlow, Director of Safe Network. “We knew that we were working with ambitious timeframes but the Kainos team did an excellent job, working in close partnership with the NSPCC and Razorfish, to ensure that the site went live as planned in June. We are delighted with the end result and the Kainos team made a very significant contribution to the successful launch of the Safe Network website."

Children’s minster, Baroness Delyth Morgan joined 150 other delegates at the launch of the National Safeguarding Unit and its website, on June 5th.

“This was a very rewarding project to work on and one that we are very proud of at Kainos both in terms of what we have achieved and the timeframe in which we achieved it,” added Paul Coad, Kainos’s head of delivery. “The NSU project was a very high profile undertaking for the NSPCC and it had very tight and critical delivery dates that had already been publically announced in the press by the time we got involved. Our experience working with MOSS coupled with a dedicated delivery team ensured that we met the timeframe and it was a delight to represent Kainos at the launch of the National Safeguarding Unit for the Third Sector in Westminster.”
