Safeguarding report-handling mechanism: case studies

Bond

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

This set of case studies should be used to support learning and safeguarding implementation in conjunction with the 20 core elements: a toolkit to strengthen safeguarding report-handling.

The case studies illustrate how some of the elements and principles identified as necessary components of any reporting mechanism apply in real-life reporting scenarios.

The case studies presented here aim to enable staff to:

  • See the real-life actions that are needed to put a safeguarding report-handling mechanism into practice.
  • Understand how a well-functioning report-handling mechanism can help an organisation to overcome common real life safeguarding challenges.

Each case study is followed by an outline of the key issues raised, recommendations, and questions for further consideration.

  • Workplace harassment
  • Sexual exploitation and abuse
  • Safeguarding violations and their impact on community relations
  • Cultural sensitivities
  • Vague suspicions
  • Silent survivors
  • Asking for favours
