Conducting Safeguarding Investigations Training
Everyone at HelpAge International has a role in creating and sustaining a safe and respectful working environment, where no one comes to any harm or is maltreated. At HelpAge we take our responsibilities very seriously and will take action against wrongdoing. We will do everything we can to ensure that we do not engage people that pose a safeguarding risk and will undertake criminal record checks as required.
At HelpAge we use the following working definition of safeguarding:
Safeguarding is the responsibility of HelpAge to make sure our staff, operations, and programmes do no harm to anyone who comes into contact with the charity. This includes preventing inappropriate behaviours such as staff bullying and harassment.
Safeguarding Committees have been formed in every country and region where we work, and they are responsible for embedding safeguarding in their local operation.
Scope of work
As part of our commitment to embed safeguarding in our working culture, we have identified the need for our internal managers in all our offices, partners and Network Members who deliver our programmes to receive specialist safeguarding investigations training.
Training design and delivery
The Consultant will design a two-day safeguarding investigations training, targeted at management in partner organisations and internally. The aim is for learners to know how to conduct fair, thorough and confidential investigations into safeguarding concerns.
At HelpAge International we work hard to achieve our goals together as a team with a clear shared purpose. Our values inform how we work together:
We respect people, value diversity and are committed to equality.
We value and recognise the contribution of our staff and network members, as we put older people at the centre of everything we do.
We work alongside network members and others to increase reach, influence and impact. We are committed to a culture of collaboration and building positive relationships.
We are passionate about learning, accountable and work together to find creative solutions.
Everyone who works at HelpAge share our values and are committed to behaviours that demonstrate and support them.
