Enhanced due diligence guide

The UK government hosted the Safeguarding Summit on 5 March 2018 where the then Secretary of State, Penny Mordaunt announced that the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) would put in place new, enhanced and specific standards for UK charities and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) (opens in a new window).

These standards cover partner policies and processes on safeguarding, whistleblowing, human resources, risk management, codes of conduct and governance.

This guidance provides partners with details of the new standards and how they will be used in enhanced due diligence assessments (DDAs) to assess an organisation’s ability to protect from sexual exploitation and abuse and harassment, children, young people and vulnerable adults they work with as well as their own staff and volunteers.

Additional support in the form of training opportunities and resources can also be found on Bond’s website (opens in a new window).
