Safeguarding and Child Protection

Protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults from harm is central to achieving our mission of ending global poverty.

At VSO we are committed to ensuring the experience of our organisation is one that is free from any form of abuse or exploitation. Everyone who comes into contact with any person associated with VSO should at all times feel respected and safeguarded.

To enforce this, VSO’s global safeguarding policy has a range of preventative measures and systems to prevent any form of abuse, and clear procedures for disciplinary action in the event this policy is breached.

If you have concerns or wish to talk to someone in confidence about a safeguarding issue please contact the Lead Safeguarding Officer at VSO on +44 (0)207 1188 141 or
