Government to do more to make charities strengthen safeguarding procedures

The Government needs to do more to make charities strengthen safeguarding procedures to ensure the "horrific behaviour" of sof Oxfam International is not repeated.

That's according to the spokesman for the prime minister.

Theresa May's spokesman told reporters that international aid minister Penny Mordaunt was meeting Oxfam representatives on Monday to consider what further steps needed to be taken over a sexual misconduct scandal in Haiti.

"DFID (the Department for International Development) have taken action in this area to try and further strengthen systems to enforce a zero tolerance approach. There are a number of measures they have taken but we want to go further in this area," he said.
