Work is now well underway on the DfID-funded project on Governance and Reporting, in connection with the work of Working Group 4: Complaints and Reporting, which was set up following the DfID Summit on Safeguarding in INGOs in the Spring. This project focuses on the preparation of guidance to the sector on Governance and Reporting in conjunction with the recommendations made following DfID’s Summit last Spring and those set out in Parliament’s recent International Development Committee Report in respect of its inquiry into sexual exploitation in the humanitarian aid sector published in July 2018, and the upcoming DfID Summit scheduled for 18 October.
An initial draft of the guidance is expected to be substantially advanced in the next few weeks. To the extent that your charity would like to contribute to the discussions taking place in connection with the development of this key sector guidance, please contact Kate Sayer at Kate.Sayer@sayervincent.co.uk as soon as possible to arrange to do so.
As part of BWB’s continued commitment to supporting charities in securing best practice in meeting their safeguarding obligations, Emma Dowden-Teale (Partner, Public and Regulatory) is delighted to have joined the Steering Committee for the production of this crucially important work.
