Keeping Children Safe
Keeping Children Safe is an independent not-for-profit. They set out internationally recognised child safeguarding standards that ensure all organisations working directly for and with children have comprehensive safeguarding measures in place. Their independence means that their standards and advice are not influenced by any other organisation or government.
Their standards are recognised amongst others by the UK’s Department For International Development (DFID), the European Commission (EC), USAID, and the UN, and enable organisations of all types and sizes to implement rigorous policies, processes and audits that protect children from abuse. That means training staff to understand appropriate language and behaviour. Encouraging teams to run background checks on new recruits. And helping families and communities to understand what they can do to support young people. Because together, every day, they're keeping children safe.
Keeping Children Safe’s core mission is to make sure children everywhere are safe from harm, which is why their International Child Safeguarding Standards (pdf) are open source and freely downloadable for use by organisations around the world.See more
