The term 'safeguarding' is often not well explained or communicated to crucial audiences unfamiliar with or new to this area - staff, local partners and people accessing aid.

Organisations' policies and procedures can be overwhelmingly complicated and topdown and appropriate reporting mechanisms nonexistent.There's widespread action to change this but gaps remain in the information on offer to prevent and act on sexual exploitation and abuse, bullying and harassment.

Through our innovation programme; DEPP Labs, which has encouraged new and local actors to lead humanitarian action and with experts Safer Edge, we're offering a suite of tools and guidance to make safeguarding clear for everyone.

Download these free resources and let us know what you think. We want to test and refine these tools to ensure they are useful in as many humanitarian settings as possible and for people new to this area.
