This set of case studies has been produced by Bond and its members to share how NGOs address the complex issues or difficult considerations around doing safeguarding well.
These case studies complement the sector’s 2018 commitment to change in safeguarding, which pulls together Bond members’ work to improve their safeguarding policies and practices. They also demonstrate how the NGO sector drives forwards consistency and leadership on safeguarding.
