Developing and modelling a positive safeguarding culture: A tool for leaders (2021)
In 2021, Bond, the UK network for organisations working in international development, created a discussion-based tool to support leaders of organisations to understand what a positive safeguarding culture looks like. It will help leaders to assess their organisational culture in relation to safeguarding and develop clear actions to help prevent all types of harm, including sexual exploitation, abuse and sexual harassment.
The tool has six sections:
- policies and processes;
- do no harm/safer programming;
- survivor-centred approach; awareness-raising;
- and safer recruitment and HR processes.
This tool is not a safeguarding training tool. It is designed to facilitate honest discussion and generate conversations to support teams or organisations to make important culture changes within their working environments.
