VOLUNTEER TERMS AND CONDITIONS



Child Safeguarding Code of Conduct


Volunteers are required to read and abide by the code of conduct on all activities affiliated or in support of UNICEF Nigeria. Volunteers agree to fulfil their duty of care to safeguard children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse to the best of their ability; and agree to abide by the principles and behaviours outlined below.


The below is not an exhaustive list and should be interpreted in a good spirit. Everyone should avoid actions or behavior which may constitute poor practice or potentially abusive behavior towards children and should ensure that a culture of openness exists empowering children. As a Volunteer for a UNICEF activity you  will:


Always

  1. Work in a way that respects children’s rights and places their best interests above all other considerations.

  2. Treat all children with equal respect, without discrimination, regardless of their gender, culture, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, or ability.

  3. Respect cultural and religious differences when engaging with children and their families and be sensitive to these in interactions with them.

  4. Maintain appropriate boundaries at all times whenever in direct or indirect contact with children, and not engage in any conduct that breaches appropriate boundaries; this includes online and digital contact.

  5. Avoid working alone and spending excessive time with a child and be aware of situations which may present risks. You should plan your work so that, at least, two adults are present at any time and avoid taking children to your home or go to their home, especially, where they may be alone with you. If working alone is unavoidable, you should move to an area where you and the child can both be seen by other colleagues or other adults.

  6. Act on safeguarding concerns swiftly, to reduce the risk of further harm to a child, including calling the appropriate authorities.

  7. Avoid inappropriate physical contact with a child. If a child is hurt or distressed, comfort or reassure him/her without compromising his/her dignity or doing anything to discredit your own behavior.

  8. Behave appropriately, ensure that language is moderated in their presence and refrain from adult jokes or comments which are clearly unsuitable.

  9. Pay attention to what the children are saying and respond/report appropriately.

  10. Plan activities in advance to ensure they take into account the age range, gender and needs and ability of all participants.

Never

  1. Spend time alone with children where actions cannot be observed by other adults

  2. Engage in any sexual activity (contact or non-contact) with a child, or any activity that could be perceived as intimate.

  3. Have a child with whom you are working to stay overnight at your home unsupervised.

  4. Endorse the participation of a child in abusive activities (e.g. bullying).

  5. Abuse physically or emotionally a child by acting in a way that shames or degrades them or puts them at risk of abuse.

  6. Allow allegations made by a child or concerns about their welfare to go unrecorded or not acted upon.
