SAFEGUARDING
To safeguard means to actively set measures in place to preserve and enhance people’s safety in all areas of their lives.

The world we live in is structurally unequal in that certain groups of people have more cultural status, societal value and structural power than others in our society. Sadly, it is the people who have more given-privilege in the world who exploit people with less given-privilege. Safeguarding aims to stop this.

Justice Studio are experts in safeguarding, as can be seen from our range of work in this area:

 

In order to address issues of safeguarding in the delivery of aid, Justice Studio designed an innovative new safeguarding review framework and capacity strengthening support for the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Uganda. This three year Safeguarding and Fiduciary Risk programme, carried out in partnership with BDO is the first of its kind and addresses safeguarding at five interconnecting levels: governance, staff, beneficiaries, communities and the environment.

We carried out a baseline assessment of an emerging Child Protection System in Myanmar for Save the Children Myanmar. Initiated by the Myanmar Department of Social Welfare (DSW) which was establishing statutory case management units in 27 townships. The baseline study aimed at building the capacity of a child protection workforce, establishing a child protection response mechanism, and ensuring children and families have access to child protection services. Justice Studio carried out research in order to explore the possibility of creating an ‘Aid Worker Passport’; a digital identity for humanitarian and development workers, that will document humanitarian workers’ experiences, credentials and misconduct history for Department for International Development Uganda with DAI. Our research built on UK and international best practice, and informed DFID’s leadership in the area.
