Effective safeguarding is fundamental to HALO’s work. As an ethical and humanitarian charity, we seek to ensure that we do not harm anyone who works for, or who comes into contact with HALO; we actively promote welfare, wellbeing and the right behaviours.

Our values and standards are at the heart of everything we do. We expect all our staff to act with:

  • Moral courage
  • Discipline
  • Integrity
  • Respect for others
  • Loyalty
  • Selfless commitment


Everything they do should be lawful, appropriate and professional. 

"The best part of my job is seeing the tangible outcome of my day-to-day work and working alongside, and learning from, my national staff colleagues.
