This guide focuses on disability-inclusive safeguarding in the workplace 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:

  1. Definitions of different disabilities: physical disabilities, hearing impairments, intellectual disabilities, mental health conditions and psychosocial disabilities and visual impairments.
  2. Risks of sexual exploitation, abuse and sexual harassment (SEAH) and other harms and abuses that persons with disabilities face in the CSO workplace.
  3. Responding to the risks identified and how to make your workplace safeguarding measures disability-inclusive.
