Working internationally and concerned about child protection? GCPS can help...
Children worldwide are at risk of violence, abuse and exploitation and many experience harm on a daily basis. It is crucial that agencies in contact with children identify protection risks and issues and do what they can to minimise these through quality programmes. Staff and others can also pose a risk to children, so agencies have a responsibility to keep children safe and do no harm in working with them.
