Our mission

Our mission is to end child abuse in all organisations.

Our vision is for every child to grow up safe from abuse, exploitation and neglect.

Keeping Children Safe is an international not-for-profit registered in the UK, solely focused on child safeguarding. This means that everything we do is driven by the best interests of the child or children.

  • We set out internationally recognised child safeguarding standards for organisations around the world.
  • We stand up for children’s right to be safe, and we believe that all organisations, no matter how big or powerful, should be accountable for safeguarding children.
  • We are completely independent, which means we are never influenced by any other organisation, donor or government.
  • We are committed to consulting with children, their caregivers, and taking their views into account. 


All of our work is evidence-based and subject to continuous monitoring, improvement and external review by our Independent Review Committee.

Our Strategic Plan

In sector after sector, survivors and whistleblowers have exposed horrific child abuse, sometimes after decades of cover-ups and missed opportunities to act. Download a copy of our Strategic Plan 2022-2027 (pdf), which sets out how we aim to challenge and support even more organisations around the world to end child abuse.
