Grant holders must take all reasonable steps to prevent the sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment of any person linked to the delivery of a project by both its employees and any partner organisation. UK Aid Match has a zero-tolerance approach towards sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment.
As part of its role as Fund Manager, MannionDaniels has engaged Expolink, a whistleblowing service provider. This is an anonymous, free-to-call and confidential service, which enables reporting safeguarding concerns.
If you would like to contact UK Aid Match with a safeguarding concern regarding suspected abuse, contact the UK Aid Match Safeguarding Lead on firstname.lastname@example.org or on the Expolink service.
Alternatively, you can contact DFID directly through this secure email address: email@example.com.
This guidance provides partners with details of the new standards and how they will be used in enhanced due diligence assessments to assess an organisation’s ability to protect from sexual exploitation and abuse and harassment, children, young people and vulnerable adults they work with as well as their own staff and volunteers.
This webinar covers DFID’s due diligence assessments in more detail, as well as best practice from across our portfolio of grant holders. Railway Children and Homes for Children also share their experiences of rolling out and developing their safeguarding policies and procedures.
