We are Plan International; we work with children and girls in over 80 countries to help create a world where we are all equal. We recognise our duty to be as effective and efficient as possible and to be accountable to all our stakeholders.
Accountability to the children and programme participants we were founded to support is at the heart of Plan International’s global strategy, All Girls Standing Strong. Plan International cannot achieve its mission without being open and honest towards our donors, staff, children and programme participants we serve. Our aim is to take full responsibility for the way we work, the decisions we make, and the impact we have by reporting on both our successes and our mistakes, and learning from them.
Plan International’s policies support and promote transparency at all levels of our organisation and ensure we uphold the needs and meet the expectations of all our stakeholders, in particular the children and programme participants we exist to serve.
Plan International’s clear and unequivocal safeguarding policy, Say Yes! to Keeping Children and Programme Participants Safe and Protected aims to make sure no child or programme participant who is associated with Plan International comes to any harm.

Our Global Policy on Values, Conduct and Whistleblowing and our Whistleblowing Policy detail the standards we expect from everyone at Plan International, and support our staff and stakeholders to speak up about unacceptable behaviour and wrongdoing.
For staff or stakeholders who don’t feel able to report malpractice to relevant Plan International management there is an independent, confidential reporting mechanism. It is provided by Safecall, via a secure web portal at www.safecall.co.uk/report and by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
