Our Commitment

At CBM Global, we believe that every child and adult have the right to be protected from all forms of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation, regardless of age, gender, sexuality, sexual orientation, religion, ethnic origin or whether or not they have a disability.

CBM Global is committed to ensuring that all children and adults who engage with our advocacy, advisory work, development, and humanitarian field programmes are safeguarded to the greatest extent possible.

We have a zero tolerance toward all forms of abuse and take seriously any safeguarding concern or allegation involving CBM Global staff, representatives and partners. This means that we will:

  • Take proactive steps to prevent abuse, including child abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, neglect, physical abuse and verbal abuse.
  • Respond to every reported concern and where there is indication of a possible violation of our policy, a thorough investigation will be initiated and appropriate disciplinary action taken as required.
  • Hold all CBM Global staff and representatives up to the same standards and procedures, regardless of their position within the organization.

We encourage you to use this site to report any safeguarding incident or concern you may have.

  • CBM Global does not require proof or evidence from persons reporting a safeguarding concern. Any person can raise a concern or complaint they have heard about, witnessed or experienced relating to a CBM Global staff, representative or partner without fear of reprisal.
  • Reports received will be addressed in a timely and professional manner to ensure the safety and well-being of victim-survivors, and that their dignity and human rights are upheld throughout the process.
  • All reported incidents will be officially acknowledged within 48 hours of receiving the concern or complaint.
  • The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose.
