IFRC Child Safeguarding Policy

The purpose of this IFRC Child Safeguarding Policy is to provide a framework for ensuring that IFRC programmes are designed and implemented with the best interests of the child in mind. In particular, it aims to ensure that children are protected from all forms of violence, abuse, exploitation, and neglect in all IFRC programmes, preventative actions are prioritized, and accountability is ensured.

This Policy applies to all IFRC personnel including staff, interns, consultants, and volunteers at any level and in any location. In addition, this Policy also defines what is expected from IFRC partners, contractors, and suppliers with regard to child safeguarding and reporting of suspicions of violence, abuse, exploitation, and neglect of children in all programming connected to the IFRC.
