Skip to 0 minutes and 17 seconds All organizations who work with children and vulnerable adults in the UK are expected to put safeguarding policies in place. This is to ensure that everyone is protected from harm and that anyone who is in contact with children and vulnerable adults is able to recognize signs of abuse and neglect, knows what to do in these situations and how to report their concerns in order to promote a safeguard environment for all. This course will focus on the main principles of safeguarding on how to be confident in reporting and responding to safeguarding issues. And more importantly, on how to contextualize safeguarding while also supporting individuals and organizations to strengthen capacity to prevent and address potential harm.
Skip to 1 minute and 9 seconds We aim to share good practice and provide a space for reflection on how to tackle different issues related to safeguarding, especially when it comes to research with international partners. Safeguarding research is still relatively new and sometimes it overlaps with the requirements of the research ethics process. We will try to unpack how safeguarding differs from research ethics and what are the similarities in doing so. We hope to provide prompts for reflection and discussion and useful materials to enhance research capacities worldwide. This course provides an interactive learning opportunity for researchers working internationally, and crosscultural for NGOs, practitioners, charities, volunteers, students and all those involved in cross cultural work which require safeguarding.
