Action Against Hunger UK's policy on protection from sexual exploitation and abuse

We understand our work can create unequal power balances between Action Against Hunger UK employees, its representatives and the communities we work with – especially their most vulnerable members. We are committed to mitigating the risks associated with this.

In addition to harming people, sexual abuse and exploitation erodes integrity and damages the trust and confidence of the public, our donors and other stakeholders. It therefore affects our ability to achieve our vision and mission.

All employees and representatives of Action Against Hunger UK must uphold and promote the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct at all times.
