We have worked with our members to develop this international self-audit tool to help those working with partners overseas.
This practical and easy-to-use tool gives a framework based on best practice within the UK which can be combined with the knowledge and understanding from partner organisations about their local context, infrastructure, and culture to develop an effective action plan.
The tool is built around seven core principles which include:
- Organisational culture
- Policy and Procedural standards
- Recruiting safely
- Training and development
- Safer working
- Recognising, responding and reporting concerns
- Working with overseas partners
It follows a three stage process of reviewing the arrangements of the UK organisation, dialogue with the overseas partner organisations, and the formulation of the action plan.
"With the increased requirements from the Charity Commission to ensure that our overseas partner organisations are improving their own safeguarding standards, the recent work in Bulgaria using the new International Audit Tool has been invaluable. Not only has this process been ground-breaking for our partners, but it has definitely given us a greater understanding of our role and responsibilities in both the UK and abroad."
Chris Clarke, Trustee, Krasif Aid Charity.
