Child Safeguarding Policy
Save the Children aims to be a child safe organisation.
Everyone associated with Save the Children must be made aware of the problem and risks of child abuse
and sexual exploitation for the children we work with.
Save the Children must do all that it can to prevent, report and respond to these issues.
Our staff and other representatives will at all times demonstrate the highest standards of behaviour
towards children and the standards of behaviour outlined in this Protocol apply to both the private and
professional lives of all staff and representatives.
Commitment to Children
- Awareness - we will ensure that all staff, partners and other representatives are aware of the problem of child abuse and sexual exploitation and the risks to children. Children and their families will be made aware of the standards of behaviour they can expect from our representatives and of how they can raise a concern.
- Prevention - we will ensure, through awareness raising and good practice, that staff and others minimise the risks to children. Staff and managers will create an environment where children’s rights are respected and child abuse and sexual exploitation of children is prevented.
- Reporting - we will ensure that staff and others are clear as to what steps to take where concerns arise regarding the abuse or exploitation of children.
- Responding - we will ensure that action is taken to support, safeguard and protect children where concerns arise regarding their possible abuse and exploitation.
