Safeguarding Resources

Dóchas is committed to supporting member organisations to collaborate on Safeguarding and preventing sexual exploitation and abuse across the international development sector.

We are collating relevant up-to-date resources to share with members so that we can all work together to improve safeguarding standards across the sector.

We will keep this portal up-to-date as new resources are available.
