Policy on protection from sexual exploitation and abuse

We recognise the right of people everywhere to be treated with dignity and to be protected 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’re 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.

If you have any concerns, please contact Maria Franklin, our Lead Safeguarding Officer, on 020 8293 6195 or [email protected].
