At A Rocha, we are committed to safeguarding the health, wellbeing, and human rights of all individuals, irrespective of age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnic origin.
It is our firm belief that everyone we come into contact with has the right to live free from harm, abuse, neglect, and exploitation in harmony with the environment.
We maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards serious misconduct. Violence, abuse, harassment, or exploitation of any kind by our staff or associates will not be tolerated. All our staff and representatives are expected to create an environment where children, young people, and adults can live without fear of harm, abuse, harassment, bullying, or exploitation.
Any safeguarding concern or incident is treated with utmost seriousness. Whether you are a staff member, programme participant, or a member of the public, you can report concerns about the behaviour of A Rocha staff or representatives in the following ways:
All calls and voice messages are handled confidentially. Your identity will not be disclosed without your consent, and you have the option to remain anonymous. All safeguarding concerns will be thoroughly investigated, and appropriate action will be taken in line with our policies.
