Sexual abuse and misconduct (SAM) risk stakeholder expectations have changed

It is no longer enough for organizations to rely solely on the four pillars approach to preventing SAM and expect their stakeholders will be satisfied.  Stakeholders expect more.

1. Always be Using Best Practices

Stakeholders in every environment where children and the vulnerable are cared for outside their homes expect all of us trying to keep children and the vulnerable safe from SAM are always using the best and most effective SAM risk management practices, whatever they may be.  

2. Always be Adapting to Change

All stakeholders expect that, because SAM, SAM risk, SAM risk management, the organizations managing SAM risk, and all the environments these live in change all the time, an organization’s SAM risk management will constantly adapt to change. 

3. Always be Getting Better

All stakeholders also expect that all of us involved with trying to keep children and the vulnerable safe from SAM will keep trying to get better at keeping them safe.

Always using best practices, constantly adapting to change, and constantly improving SAM risk management are at the heart of building confidence in SAM risk management.
