Child and adults-at-risk Safeguarding at CBM

A free Pedriatic Eye and Ear Camp was held in Nepal days after the April 2015 earthquake.

CBM and its partner organisations have a critical responsibility to uphold the protection of all children and persons who place their trust in us.

Child and adults-at-risk safeguarding is a core policy commitment of CBM. This guides CBM’s programmes and operations as we work towards our goal of improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities in the poorest communities of the world.

Annually, approximately 80% of our global programs serve children – most of whom are children with or at risk of disability. It has been proven in several studies that children with disabilities are at least two times more likely to be abused as children without disabilities. In view of this increased risk for children with disabilities, adherence to our child safeguarding policy is key.

CBM requires that all staff and representatives (contractors, consultants, visitors, goodwill ambassadors…) understand, sign and adhere to the Child Safeguarding policy and behavior code. CBM also has a wider Code of Conduct that stipulates acceptable and unacceptable behavior of employees and third parties.

As an organisation that delivers services primarily via partners, CBM requires partner organisations to have their own child safeguarding policies or procedures in place.

In case you require more information from CBM about safeguarding of children or adults-at-risk or have a concern/feedback in relation to safeguarding, contact us at .
