Policies and Procedures: Child safeguarding policy 2018

Save the Children is the world’s leading independent child rights organization. We have many programs across the country where we strive to protect children from harm. As we strive to do in our child protection programs, it is equally important to promote awareness of children’s rights and child protection within our organization. Therefore, employees, consultants, interns, representatives or volunteers of Save the Children South Africa have a responsibility to keep children safe from harm, and to report and respond to abuse effectively when it occurs.

To this end, the Child Safeguarding Policy was created to ensure that all members of staff and representatives take steps at all levels to reduce the risk of harm to children in all areas of work. This document includes protocols, procedures and guidelines for anyone within the organization to prevent and respond to child protection concerns when they arise.
