The Hub has a clear commitment to safeguarding in accordance with the International Development Research Funders Statement on Safeguarding (UKCDR, 2018).
In keeping with our principles, the Hub is committed to maintaining the highest degree of ethical behaviour amongst our team and with those whom we engage. In particular, we:
- Promote a culture in which harm and abuse is less likely to happen and act swiftly to respond to cases that do emerge in line with international standards.
- Promote a culture of openness, trust and transparency to ensure people are safe and protected from harm and abuse wherever possible and where ever they are located.
- Promote robust procedures for the mitigation of safeguarding risks, including a code of conduct, appropriate governance, whistle-blowing and risk management policies; and fair recruitment procedures.
