Child safeguarding is a fundamental aspect of our operations and programme work. Our > SOS Care Promise articulates our commitment to create a safe environment for children and young people, and our Child Protection Policy and accompanying procedures are mandatory across the entire SOS Children’s Villages federation.  

Child Safeguarding

Our Child Safeguarding approach is about: Minimizing risks through awareness raising and prevention and managing incidents through reporting and responding to these.   

The term child safeguarding includes all activities that the organisation undertakes to ensure that:

  • its co-workers, operations, and programmes do no harm to children and do not expose them to the risk of harm and abuse;
  • appropriate responses and effective management of child safeguarding concerns are in place;
  • any concerns about children´s safety in our programs or within the communities we work in are reported to the appropriate authorities.
