Every day, in every country, children are abused, beaten, raped and more. Too often, the abuser is someone in an organisation that’s meant to help and protect children. An adult the child trusts.

Keeping Children Safe sets tough International Child Safeguarding Standards 
to ensure all organisations protect children from exploitation and abuse.
