We are committed to safeguarding the people we help and who we work alongside.

Safeguarding is about protecting people, and it informs everything we do on the Australian Volunteers Program. It is our collective responsibility to protect people by preventing harm from happening and by responding appropriately when people are harmed.

At the core of all our safeguarding work is a commitment to survivors of all forms of abuse, violence, exploitation, harassment, or neglect. Survivors can include anyone we encounter through our work, whether beneficiaries, employees, partners, volunteers, or community members.

Child protection and safeguarding and the prevention of sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment (PSEAH) are included under the umbrella term of ‘safeguarding.’ Learn more about our approach and policies below.
