Our work

Quality and standards

For more than two decades, we have worked tirelessly with children, young people and their communities and are committed to ensuring children affected by conflict are safe, heard, and have bright hopeful futures.

War Child is committed to ensuring children are kept as safe as possible from the devastating impacts of war.   

We engage with children, young people and their communities to understand, advocate and address their needs and concerns and include them meaningfully in the design and development of our programmes.  

We adhere to the Core Humanitarian Standard to ensure quality and accountability to children is central to everything we do and engage with sector leaders to ensure we are using best practice and the most effective tools and approaches available to achieve the best outcomes for those we work with. 

We strive to innovate and adapt as we learn through reflection and engagement with children, young people and their communities, particularly women and girls, people living with disabilities and especially vulnerable or marginalised groups. We aim to support and strengthen communities to ensure sustainable change long after our programmes have ended. 

We ensure the highest level of safety and safeguarding through our work and put the interests of children and young people at the centre of everything we do.
