Learning what actions are safe and what actions are not, what responsibilities volunteers and staff have, and where to access help are all necessary to create safe environments that are free of violence, exploitation, and abuse for adults and children.
There are a number of learning resources available to IFRC and National Society personnel.
The PGI team and its partners have developed or recommended several online courses on safeguarding. Please see below for further information. If you have one to recommend and share, be sure to tell us via email or through the Get Involved page.
This 30 minute course will help you learn about our policy commitments to protect people we work with. It will focus on the risks of sexual exploitation and abuse; our responsibilities to prevent and protect from harm; and what to do if you are concerned about the safety of a person who might be at risk or suffered from abuse.
