FCDO safeguarding due diligence guidance 2: Code of conduct, recruitment, and training

20 October 2023Bond's Partnerships and Local Leadership (PALL) working group and Bond's Safeguarding Adviser, Graham Thursby

To support organisations to successfully input FCDO’s Safeguarding against Sexual Exploitation and Abuse and Sexual Harassment (SEAH) Due Diligence Guidance, Bond has teamed up with our Partnerships and Local Leadership (PALL) working group to produce a set of three case studies. The case studies can be used to support UK aid-funded INGOs that work with partners to implement due diligence within the partnerships to safeguard against sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment (SEAH), but they can also help any organisation and donor think about their safeguarding practices and procedures too.

This second briefing focuses on code of conduct, recruitment, and training.

You can find the other two briefing papers here:

Briefing 1: FCDO safeguarding due diligence guidance: Safeguarding approach and complaints & whistleblowing

Briefing 3: FCDO safeguarding due diligence guidance: Risk management and governance and accountability
