Theme: Are charities doing more harm than good by using images and stories of vulnerable children?

Charities and development agencies use images and stories of vulnerable children to generate support for their work. These are very effective ‘tools’ but are they in the best interest of the child? Do these stories and images in fact place children at risk of harm and are they a price worth paying to generate support for vulnerable children?

Speaker: Corinee Davey, Director, Keeping Children Safe and Director of Global Child Protection Services

Corinne Davey currently divides her time between two roles, Director of Keeping Children Safe and a Director of Global Child Protection Services. Corinne has worked in international development organisations since 2001, moving from the UK public sector. Her principle background prior to 2009 was in Human Resources Development. She began work in international development in Plan International’s Asia Regional Office as their HR Advisor. She worked with the regional team in developing Plan’s rights based approach, with specific focus on the people systems, structures, skills and behaviours which promote rights based programming.

She then worked with EveryChild as their Learning and Resources Director. That brief included Human Resources but also covered planning, monitoring and evaluation, child participation, child protection and briefly communications and advocacy. Corinne worked with the senior management team on the process of refocusing EveryChild’s organisational strategy to work more directly with children without parental care, increase revenue and decrease costs. She led on the process for developing global, regional and country strategies, reviewing overseas programmes and partnerships to align them with the new direction.

Since 2009 Corinne’s focus has been on child protection and child safeguarding. As Director of Keeping Children Safe, she has led the organisation through establishing itself as an independent organisation, setting up a consultancy service and scaling up significantly its work on communications and advocacy to promote child safeguarding within a range of organisations whose work impacts on children. As a Director of Global Child Protection Services, Corinne has worked with her colleagues on building the company’s expertise in delivering a range of services for clients, with a particular focus for Corinne on organisations child protection interventions at community and local level.
