We are a child safe organisation. We have zero tolerance for child abuse. We value, respect and listen to children and are committed to supporting child safety and wellbeing in our work.
We embed a child safe culture across our work through the following principles:
Safeguarding applies not only to children but also to adults engaged with Red Cross. All Red Cross people have an obligation to do no harm. We are committed to improving the wellbeing and safety of those adults with whom we interact, particularly anyone experiencing vulnerability or depending on Red Cross support and services.
The following polices and related documents help guide us in protecting the safety and wellbeing of everyone we engage with.
Complaints, Concerns and Feedback Policy
Prevention of Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Harassment Policy
