Policy - A statement of instruction that sets out the guiding principles.
Procedure - A statement or instruction that sets out how our policies will be implemented and by whom.
Vulnerable adults – This is defined as:
  • any person aged 18 years and over, and
  • who is or may be in need of community care services by reason of mental health issues, learning or physical disability, sensory impairment, or unable to protect themselves due to age or illness, and/or
  • persons we suspect are at risk of suicide through available information at hand; and/or
  • persons who may be unable to take care of themselves or unable to protect themselves against significant harm or serious exploitation.

Reasonable grounds to suspect - a situation where a person has some information that leads them believe that abuse, neglect or exploitation has taken place, is taking place, or may take place. Reasonable grounds requires a low burden of proof, based on how the reasonable person would evaluate the situation.  Whether they have ‘reasonable grounds to suspect’ might include:
  • Could you explain to another person why you suspect something? This helps to make sure that your suspicion is based on information, even if you have no proof.
  • Would another objective person, with the same information, come to the same conclusion? This helps to make sure that your suspicion is objective and satisfies the reasonable grounds standard.
This policy does not cover:
Sexual harassment in the workplace – this is dealt with under the Movember Workplace Behaviours Policy.

Principles For Managing Safeguarding Risk

  1. Movember commits to promoting and protecting the welfare and human rights of people that interact with, or are affected by, our work - particularly those that may be at risk of abuse, neglect or exploitation;
  2. Movember will seek to safeguard children and vulnerable adults by valuing, listening to and respecting them;
  3. Consider the ALEC principle (ask, listen, encourage action, check in);
  4. We have no tolerance for abuse, neglect or exploitation.  We will not tolerate staff or partners taking a bullying or aggressive tone when liaising with our community or the men and women we serve;
  5. We are committed to seek appropriate permission for images of Indigenous and First Nations people, and respect the cultural sensitives relating to how these images are published.
  6. This policy does not override the need to obtain ethics approvals (per local jurisdiction requirements) for research projects that involve children and adults at risk.
  7. Ethics guidelines in local jurisdictions must be considered when evaluating programs that involve children or adults at risk.
  8. We are committed to treating donors fairly.  Movember complies with relevant codes of practice issued by the respecting fundraising regulators in each market;
  9. Concerns or allegations of abuse or neglect will always be taken seriously and investigated;
  10. Movember will not knowingly recruit staff, volunteers or other representatives to roles in which they pose a known risk to the safety or wellbeing of vulnerable adults and children;

    • Operations staff are trained in receiving calls and emails from vulnerable adults;
    • No member of the community is asked to share personal stories if we believe doing so will cause them further psychological harm;
    • We will observe the behaviour of known vulnerable adults that visit Movember offices or are involved in Movember events, and refer them to support services if required.
  12. Staff and long-term contractors are subject to police checks and provide references when they commence employment.
Failure to report to a relevant person suspicions of abuse relating to someone else is a breach of Movember policy, and could lead to disciplinary action being taken. For the avoidance of doubt, there is no obligation placed on any individual to report any incident that has happened to them.

Harassment, abuse, neglect and exploitation are all serious misconduct and Movember reserves the right to:
  1. Take disciplinary action against those it believes are responsible, which may include dismissal;
  2. Take civil legal action; and/or
  3. Report the matter to law enforcement.

Reporting Suspected Incidents

They may do this through direct reporting to:
  • Their manager;
  • Any member of HR, and/or
  • Any member of the ELT including the CEO.
If a person believes that another person is at risk of immediate harm or the victim of a criminal offence, they must dial contact emergency services on the relevant local phone number.

  1. Report any suspicion of a criminal offence to the police or the relevant criminal judicial body;
  2. Report any appropriate safeguarding issues to the relevant local authority;
  3. Report any qualifying matter to the local regulatory body.
