It also means we must answer to our supporters, donors, partners and, most of all, to children.
At Save the Children we understand that to become a more accountable and transparent organisation, first we must openly and transparently share information about our activities.
Secondly, we must ensure we proactively engage anyone with an interest in our work, providing mechanisms for feedback and complaints, so anyone with an interest in or affected by our work has the opportunity to input and influence our activities.
For more information, read our 2018 Accountability and Transparency Report.
We do everything we can to ensure children’s experience of our organisation is, before a positive and supportive experience, one that is completely free from any form of exploitation or abuse, and that children feel respected and safe.
Anyone representing our organisation must declare they have read, understood and will adhere to our child safeguarding policy at all times, both in their private and professional lives, to ensure the highest standards of behaviour towards children, young people and their families.
This is clearly stated in our Code of Conduct and Child Safeguarding Policy, where we have a zero tolerance approach to the exploitation and abuse of children.
