This online workshop will strengthen your safeguarding practice and give you an understanding of the risks, roles, responsibilities and responses for INGOs. It is aimed at any UK-based organisation working with international programmes in a development, humanitarian or academic setting. It is suitable as a first introduction and as a refresher course.

This course is a great opportunity to continue your professional development in safeguarding, whether you are directly responsible for safeguarding in your organisation or not.
