Lagos State Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy


SaffronSDGF ‘Safeguarding the Nigerian Child (SNC) Initiative congratulates His Excellency Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, of Lagos State for setting a precedence by issuing the Executive Order for the ‘Lagos State Safeguarding and Child Protection Programme’!! This policy now makes it mandatory for all ministries, departments and agencies, including schools and the police, to develop and adopt a ‘Child Focused Agenda’ in implementing the ‘Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.

As a member of the Lagos State Sub-Committee for Child Protection and Children’s Rights, SaffronSDGF advocated that the ‘Safeguarding Agenda’ be enshrined in the newly completed ‘Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy’ for the state. We also recommended in the policy, that all schools have a Designated Safeguarding Officer amongst other deliverables in the policy.

SaffronSDGF (SNC) therefore continues to pledge its commitment to working in partnership with government, private and non-governmental agencies, including international organisations to develop, deliver, quality, positive and life changing outcomes for ‘Every Nigerian Child’ globally!

Raising Standards, Protecting Children, Improving Lives for Better Outcomes.

Safeguarding the Nigerian Child Champions

Safeguarding the Nigerian Child CHAMPIONS; with the mission to safeguard and protect every Nigerian Child!
Our champions are trained and equipped to deliver unified support and advice on safeguarding children, child protection information and community-led training workshops, on issues surrounding maltreatment and abuse. They are ‘A Saffron change agent, creating positive changes in their communities.

Following the recommendations from the successful Safeguarding the Nigerian Child Professional and Social Networking Forum, held on the 15th of October 2015 at the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria,
SSDGF has engaged with a wide range of Safeguarding the Nigerian Child Champions across Nigeria and also in the UK from various professional backgrounds, community leaders, faith organisations, the media, students in higher education, volunteers, government institutions, private organisations and other NGOs.

Our champions will be included in our two day comprehensive Training for Trainers programme for our in-house consultant trainers, counselors, volunteers and commissioned trainers on delivering safeguarding, child protection training and promoting the welfare and rights of children.

Supported by SSDF, every trained Champion will be able to hold a training programme to train at least 25 other persons in ‘Level 1 Introduction to safeguarding and child protection.

SSDGF anticipates that participants in Champion-led training workshop will benefit positively from this project, causing a ‘Domino’ effect through our communities, faith and private organisations across Lagos, Nigeria and the UK. We ask that each hosting organisation that receives this training, partners with Saffron joining our project, becoming a change agent, creating positive changes in their communities, bringing about more awareness to child maltreatment, abuse, safety and positive parenting practices for better health and well-being for all our children.

Safeguarding is Everyone’s Business

safeguarding is everyone business

All organisations that come into contact with children should have specific safeguarding policies and procedures in place. This includes voluntary and community organisations, faith groups, private sector providers, as well as schools, hospitals and sports organisations.

Discussion of this ’Social Problem’ has too often remained hushed and vague, and the linkages between different forms of child abuse are overlooked.

Child Abuse and Maltreatment is a sensitive but unavoidable subject, however, the interests of culture and religion, in protecting outdated practices and preserving power networks, have all worked against child-centred safeguarding, and protection of our children.

A genuinely progressive and effective safeguarding, and child protection system, should be judged on how effectively it helps children go above the circumstances of their birth and how it equips them to take control of their own lives.
