Safeguarding Whilst Working Overseas
Many UK based charities work overseas to provide disaster appeals or humanitarian projects and services, including health care and education.
Whatever the work, all UK based charities are expected to observe their local legal responsibilities within the UK and also those of the countries where they work.
Charity Commission Guidance for Charities Working Abroad
Challenges of working overseas include:
You should apply the same practices as in England and Wales and make sure you comply with any extra requirements of the other country.
Follow The Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability for overseas humanitarian work and the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Minimum Operating Standards for Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse if relevant.
You must know when:
Only use templates that are appropriate for your charity and where it works

International Child Safeguarding Course for all Staff & Volunteers Working Overseas (available in English and Arabic versions)
This course is a must for all organisations and individuals who work across the globe, especially in countries where safeguarding training is difficult to access. It is especially relevant for international schools and colleges, faith groups, charities and aid relief providers. The course is ideal for anyone who provides services, funding and supplies to; or works directly, or has contact, with children, young people and/or their families. Developed by our in-house team of experts who have provided face to face training across the Middle East and Europe, it aims to promote the best, and universally accepted, possible working practices.
SAFE is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company focused exclusively on safeguarding. Every penny profit we make is ploughed back into the charitable and community sector so voluntary organisations and charities can benefit from SAFE’s expert services for subsidised prices. We provide a one-stop solution for everything from DBS checks, policy creation and guidance, safeguarding management briefings and incident support, to training (both face to face and online). We have already trained thousands of staff and volunteers providing thousands of hours of CPD (Continuing Professional Development). All SAFE courses meet the training requirements of the latest legislation, government guidance, local Adult & Child Safeguarding Partnerships/Boards (Adult Protection Committees and Local Area Child Protection Committees in Scotland), the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Ofsted.
