Safeguarding Development Coordinator 

Safeguarding Development Coordinator

ChildHope works with children who are considered the ‘hardest to reach’ within their communities, often children who are living and working on the streets, on dumpsites, or in other high-risk contexts. ChildHope’s approach relies first and foremost on local partnerships.

To harness and share the wealth of expertise that our global partners hold in the areas of child protection, safeguarding and children’s participation, we have developed a consultancy business together. Through our expert network we aim to improve the lives of thousands of children around the world.

The Safeguarding Development Coordinator will support ChildHope and partners to strengthen the consultancy and ensure that partners continue to deliver safe and effective programmes.
