The UK Government is committed to protecting children in conflict. DFID does not have targets for humanitarian aid spending on specific groups. Our humanitarian programming is based on an assessment of need in any given context and on evidence of which interventions are most effective. DFID is providing significant support to protect children from violence around the world through our humanitarian programming. Protection is at the centre of our humanitarian action, with partners adhering to minimum standards to ensure the safety and dignity of those most vulnerable, including children.
