International development network Bond has launched a resource to help charity leaders “understand what a positive safeguarding culture looks like”.
The tool aims to help charity leaders to review their organisational culture in relation to safeguarding as well as develop action to be taken to prevent harm, including sexual harassment, abuse and exploitation.

It has been launched as a discussion tool to help leaders generate discussion among teams “to make important culture changes within their working environment”, said Bond.
It has six sections:
• Policies and processes
• Do no harm/safer programming
• Survivor centred approach
• Safer recruitment and human resources processes
Each includes suggested questions for discussion and action to consider taking.
Two videos have been produced by Bond on Youtube to introduce the tool and explain how to use it.
