Changing the Story has produced a series of short videos which address the various aspects of safeguarding in international development research. In this video Changing the Story colleagues Linda Hoxha and Tony Cegielka discuss the extent to which individuals in designated roles need experience or training in mental health. UKCDR ask project to consider: • What training is in place for people dealing with any safeguarding issues or allegations? • How do you ensure that the project team is not being asked to go beyond its knowledge and/or experience with regard to safeguarding? • What kind of local care and support services for safeguarding are available? Are other services required?
