Save the Children

Save the Children believes that real accountability to children and communities involves giving them not only a voice, but also the opportunity to influence relevant decisions affecting whether and how we work with them. It involves giving children and communities the power to hold Save the Children to account in ways that influence the organisation’s policies, priorities, and actions at local, national and global levels. The Programme Accountability Guidance Pack brings together practical and tested ‘how-to’ guidance and training materials designed to help development and humanitarian workers put accountability into practice. The pack is primarily aimed at country-level Save the Children and partner staff responsible for implementing development or humanitarian projects and programmes.

The pack includes a DVD, with four films developed to improve understanding and facilitate discussions on programme accountability (see below).

Content from DVD: 

1. Putting Accountability into Practice: Staff perspectives

2. Ten Steps to Setting Up a Complaints and Response Mechanism

3. Respectful Encounters: Becoming accountable to communities

4. Accounta-what? Global Children’s Panel on Accountability
