Safeguarding policy and procedures at Oxfam

At Oxfam, we are committed to zero tolerance of sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse in our organisation. This means that we will do everything in our power to prevent these from happening, and rigorously address it each and every time it happens. One of the most important pillars of safeguarding is our Code of Conduct, which provides a framework within which all Oxfam employees, regardless of location, undertake to carry out their duties and to regulate their conduct. Oxfam expects all staff, volunteers and consultants to follow the Safeguarding policy and procedures at Oxfam.

On 16 February 2018, we agreed on a 10-Point Action Plan to strengthen Oxfam’s safeguarding policies and practices and to transform our organizational culture.
