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.
All of the work that we carry out is guided by a series of codes and policies which are strictly adhered to at all times.
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.
