Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility

Our mission is to end child abuse, exploitation and neglect in all organisations.

Keeping Children Safe sets International Child Safeguarding Standards to help organisations protect children from abuse.

We are completely independent and guided by the best interests of the child principle in all that we do.

We work with people who have been subjected to child abuse, researchers, practitioners, policymakers and leaders to defend children’s right to be safe in all organisations, no matter how big or powerful.
