Save the Children UK
This report focuses on the experience of Save the Children as an example of a large International Non-Governmental Organisation (INGO) that is often acting as intermediary, receiving funds from Institutional Donors, and partnering with local actors to deliver aid. It is based on a project led by Save the Children UK, called Conscious Humanitarianism, which is aiming to challenge some of the underlying behaviours and assumptions in the humanitarian system. It targets unequal areas of humanitarian delivery, where administration and bureaucracy are more powerful incentives than providing positive impact for communities. This report examines approaches to managing fiduciary risk within Save the Children Country and Regional Offices, and across existing local partners.
