Safeguarding question time
Hosted by Scotland’s International Development Alliance
Date: Thursday 21 February
Time: 1.30pm – 2.30pm
Room: Boisdale Suite 1
Safeguarding is under considerable scrutiny following heightened media attention on the international development sector and abuses that had taken place in development and humanitarian work. It is essential that third sector organisations, particularly those working in partnership either domestically or internationally, have robust policies, practice and procedures that strive to go beyond compliance, and towards a gold standard of safeguarding. Organisations in Scotland must be supported in the development and implementation of safeguarding policies and procedures.
This event will introduce the recently published Safeguarding package developed by Scotland’s International Development Alliance with support from the Scottish Government, while also helping participants to familiarise themselves with a range of other support options at Scottish and UK level.
