Safeguarding

AmplifyChange has a zero-tolerance approach to fraud, corruption, bribery, terrorism funding, child abuse, sexual abuse, modern slavery and human rights violations.

We recognise that abuse comes about as a result of an imbalance of power. Such power imbalances can happen anywhere, including between work colleagues. We also recognise our relative position of power in our working relationships with grantee partners and members of the communities they work in.

Grantee partners and their communities may be more vulnerable to abuse as safeguarding frameworks that protect individuals, particularly those who are most vulnerable in society, can differ across contexts.

As part of our commitment to safeguarding, we have trained our staff to assist grantee partners to revise or create their own safeguarding policy. We also review our grantee partners’ policies to ensure that they are in line with the requirements of their AmplifyChange grant, and to make sure that they are context specific and suitable for their organisation.
