JNCC Safeguarding statement

At the heart of JNCC’s efforts to improve international conservation and biodiversity is engagement with global communities. Within JNCC, we recognise the responsibility we have to similarly promote human dignity and social justice within our own organisation and maintain a safe and respectful workplace.

We recognise the importance of organisational culture and accountability in creating a safe and supportive organisation for our staff, our partners and the communities with whom we work.

We believe all people have a right to live their lives free from bullying, harassment (including sexual harassment), exploitation and abuse and that no child should be subjected to abuse of any form. We expect equal power between JNCC Employees and related personnel and the people we partner and work with throughout our programmes. We expect that our power will never be used to advantage ourselves or cause harm to others.

JNCC has a responsibility to protect the people we work with, and who work for us, and we will continuously strive to prevent bullying, harassment, exploitation and abuse and child abuse from happening. We will take seriously any reports that we receive by fully examining and investigating allegations and take appropriate disciplinary action where this is needed, taking into consideration the rights and interests of the victim.

The Rights of actual and potential victims, survivors and whistle blowers is central and there will always be meaningful and effective pathways for support and redress.

JNCC has a zero-tolerance approach towards bullying, harassment, exploitation and abuse and child abuse.
