Integrity At Oxfam

1 October 2022 – 30 September 2023


At Oxfam, we fight against inequality to end poverty and injustice. We advocate for economic justice, gender equality, and climate action and bring lifesaving support in times of crisis. In recent times, we have been confronted with increasingly complex emergencies, including the ongoing devastating humanitarian crises in Gaza, the Horn of Africa, Sudan, Ukraine, and Yemen. These crises have caused an unprecedented loss of life and exacerbated poverty, hunger, and inequality. Climate change has had a devastating effect on communities around the world, eroding social and economic progress and displacing millions of people. Creating safe and inclusive environments where people thrive is more critical than ever.

We work with partners and stakeholders in 81 countries and are committed to upholding human rights. Keeping people safe is a vital part of our work worldwide, from improving integrity and safeguarding policies and practices to installing solar lights that make people in refugee camps more secure. In our workplaces, we aim to create a safe and inclusive working environment where everyone feels empowered and confident in addressing integrity and safeguarding concerns. 

This report covers the period from October 2022 to September 2023. Demonstrating our accountability to stakeholders, the report presents our progress in improving integrity and safeguarding systems and organizational culture. We have made considerable progress and recognize areas for further improvement. We will continue to invest in, monitor and evaluate our integrity and safeguarding systems, with our sustained commitment to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all our stakeholders.
