Keeping Children Safe


What we are doing right now

Keeping Children Safe is a small charity run by a passionate team with big ambitions.

We campaign for all children to have the right to a safe and healthy development into adulthood, and we are committed to ending abuse, exploitation, trafficking, torture and all forms of violence against children.

We work with individuals, family foundations, wealth advisers and donor-advised funds to drive philanthropic giving in support of the universal adoption of our tough International Child Safeguarding Standards.

We build trust with donors in developing philanthropic strategies that ensure your donation supports the project of your choice, unless you are happy for us to spend it where the need is greatest.

Because we are the only independent organisation dedicated to training and building capacity, we need individuals like you, with foresight and a passionate belief in child safeguarding, to invest in our work.

With your help, we can do so much more

We hope you will join us in making child safeguarding a priority around the world. With your generous donation we can do so much more:

Risk assessments
While we have developed a free-to-use self-assessment tool that helps assess the risk of abuse within and organisation, with your help we can also go to more organisations and carry out in-depth audits.

To embed child safeguarding into the structure of an organisation, we run workshops that help train staff and encourage teams to run background checks on new recruits.

Keeping Children Safe’s certification scheme is for all organisations that come into contact with children. Our certification process, based on the International Child Safeguarding Standards, is the most effective way to demonstrate an organisation’s commitment to protecting children from harm and exploitation.

We partner with researchers, lawyers and campaigners to document and promote investigative findings and use this to present our evidence to international organisations and government bodies. 

We listen to whistleblowers. And we support them in practical ways, helping them to expose neglect and outright child abuse. 

Keeping Children Safe works directly with partner organisations and government ministers to help them develop better child safeguarding policies.

Your money is in safe hands

Because we’re passionate about ending child abuse, we are determined that every penny of your support is put to the best possible use.

As a company limited by guarantee and an independent registered charity, our accounts are independently audited and submitted to Companies House annually, and we also report to the Charity Commission, an independent body that regulates the activities of charities in the UK. You can download our latest Annual Review (pdf) here.

There still is so much work to be done, but we couldn’t do it without your help. So please do consider funding our work today, and help us break the cycle of child abuse. Your generosity really does make a difference. To help, you can donate online, or for larger donations, please contact Helen Carter on +44 (0)20 7250 8325 or email her on

Thank you for your support!
