Why they are important? Our codes and policies shape our organisation as a whole and ensure that we are always staying true to our values. They make up who we are and ultimately make sure that we are being the best that we can be.
The following documents refer to our overseas, staff and fundraising procedures. They enable us to carry out the life-saving work that we do in a fair, honest and respectful manner. These guiding documents are vital in helping us to achieve our mission of combating extreme poverty.
The following codes, policies, and guidelines are a combination of our own written codes and voluntary codes, which we abide by. Together, they ensure that we are treating one another with the respect and dignity that we all deserve.
