NCVO is consulting on a new Code of Ethics for the charity sector, closing on 26th September.
Due to recent high-profile misconduct and increased attention on the charity sector, NCVO is looking to create a voluntary code of ethics that will allow a framework for charities to update their own policies. It is intended to apply to:
- Conduct within charities
- Safe employment practices
- Dignity in the workplace
- Treating all individuals with respect
The draft code, which is based on several existing codes of behaviour, has the following principles:
- Beneficiaries first
- Right to be safe
Have your say
If you would like to have your say, contact NCVO before 26th September.
