This 20-page guide focuses on disability-inclusive safeguarding in programmes and activities in the humanitarian and development sector. Disability-inclusive safeguarding practices can help better safeguard everyone; it is in the interest of all organisations to consider this guide in their safeguarding work.
This guide is split into three sections:
- Definitions of different disabilities: physical disabilities, hearing impairments, intellectual disabilities, mental health conditions and psychosocial disabilities, and visual impairments
- Risks of harm, including sexual exploitation and abuse, that persons with disabilities face in programmes
- Managing the risks identified and how to make your safeguarding measures disability-inclusive.
