Bond logo

Bond is the UK network for organisations working in international development. Bond was founded in 1993 with 61 members. Now we unite over 400 organisations, ranging from small specialist charities to large international NGOs with a world-wide presence.

Bond works with members, government, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders to ensure organisations are equipped to prevent sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment across the international development sector. Bond provides information, guidance, tools and resources and training to support Bond members, INGOs, NGOs and other stakeholders to improve safeguarding standards and practice across their organisations.

Bond currently offers training courses on different areas of safeguarding practice:

Good safeguarding practice, which equips participants to develop a robust approach to safeguarding, including risk assessments, prevention, reporting and response procedures, and an improved ability to meet statutory and donor requirements, strengthen safeguarding policies and procedures and support partners. For safeguarding leads or focal points, HR managers or designated safeguarding officers.

Managing Safeguarding investigations equips participants to manage an investigation into safeguarding concerns, including how to develop risk assessments and terms of reference for an investigation, appoint an investigation team, and manage stakeholder relationships and reporting processes.

Safeguarding governance for boards of trustees provides bespoke workshops on safeguarding which support boards and senior leadership teams to fulfil legal and donor requirements and develop an appropriate safeguarding culture.

Bond also provides specialist support on all other areas of safeguarding, including in reviewing policies and procedures, providing comprehensive feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of safeguarding practice.

Our courses are delivered face to face or online, in the UK or worldwide. We run public courses as well as bespoke courses for organisations.

Our trainers are all development and humanitarian professionals with several years of experience supporting organisations to improve policy, practice, governance and accountability mechanisms for safeguarding.
