Not all audits are the same
Implementing child safeguarding policies and practice has implications for all aspects of an organisations work. The larger and more complex an organisation, the more difficult it may be to integrate child safeguarding across all functions, especially if there are regional and country offices.
As the only provider in the world of high quality audit services based on the International Child Safeguarding Standards, Keeping Children Safe has extensive knowledge and experience of international relief, development, sports and education, and has developed sector-specific audit procedures that are tailored to meet your individual needs. As a result, your audit will be unique and fully reflect the child safeguarding risks that your organisation faces.
The key objectives of a child safeguarding audit are to:
- Validate the information that you provide through a standards-based assessment process
- Test the robustness of your organisation’s current safeguarding measures
The audit process involves a review of your child safeguarding procedures and other documentation, and includes a site visits to your head office and field locations. We will work with you to determine how well your organisation’s current safeguarding procedures are understood and being implemented by your staff, consultants, volunteers and partner organisations.
Our auditors then compile a report that identifies your organisation’s strengths and weaknesses, and includes concrete and timely recommendations to help you improve your safeguarding practices.
