When there is an allegation of SEA, it is essential to put the welfare of survivors and whistleblowers at the center of our response (and not just focus on the subject of the complaint). This approach helps avoid causing further harm. Remember that the purpose of any assistance, or referrals, is to meet immediate needs that cannot wait for an investigation to be conducted and concluded.
