A place of greater safety

GVI’s health and safety

We believe that working abroad should be meaningful, thrilling, joyful, educational – and carry as little risk as possible. We have maintained a reputation as one of the most highly-respected sustainable development organisations in the sector over two decades by ensuring that we can successfully – and safely – manage young people in remote and challenging environments.

We are fully committed to providing extensive support throughout the process as well as the highest safety standards during your stay at any of our bases.

Our stringent support and safety operational guidelines have ensured that we are compliant with British Standard 8848, a set of requirements designed to ensure international adventure travellers the highest standard of care on their trip abroad.
