Save the Children believes all children have a right to protection from violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect. Our staff and representatives must respect children, listen to them and protect them from harm.

We are committed to making sure children are kept safe and that our staff and representatives never exploit the position of trust in which they have been placed.

We have zero-tolerance of any form of harm to children, by our staff or representatives, our programs, or our operations.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, inspired by the work of our founder Eglantyne Jebb, says that all children have the right to be protected.

We require our staff to uphold the highest standards, and always act in the best interest of children. If they don’t, they cannot work for Save the Children.


We have a Child Safeguarding Policy that help us deliver our commitment to safeguarding. Please refer to the full document below.


It is important to us that the children and families we serve can learn more about our commitment to child safeguarding. We have a number of policies in place across our organisation that help us deliver our commitment to safeguarding: Child Safeguarding Policy, Code of Conduct, Anti-Harassment Policy.
We also offer child safeguarding services to support child-serving organisations in Hong Kong in enhancing their child safeguarding efforts. For more information, visit our Child Safeguarding Partnerships Services page.
