Safeguarding Whilst Working Overseas

Many UK based faith groups work overseas to provide disaster appeals or humanitarian projects and services, including health care and education. Whatever the work, all UK based faith groups are expected to observe their local legal responsibilities within the UK and also those of the countries where they work.


Trustees, elders and managers s need to consider the safeguarding elements of supporting projects, working with partners and employing staff locally. Their faith groups may also work in high risk areas and assessment of risk for the protection of staff, volunteers and vulnerable beneficiaries also needs to be considered.


There have been several high profile cases of serious offenders working or volunteering with UK based faith groups abroad. Trustees, elders and managers are held to be legally responsible for their faith group's work, therefore robust adult and child safeguarding arrangements are vital to both protect vulnerable beneficiaries and the faith groupís reputation. In some cases, where trustees, elders and managers have been found to be negligent, public liability insurance cover has been reduced. Trustees, elders and managers have then had to fund subsequent legal claims at great personal cost.
