NCVO Code of Ethics draft up for consultation
As part of the response to the safeguarding scandals, NCVO has convened a working party under Dame Mary Marsh to develop a Code of Ethics for the sector “to support charities… in recognising and resolving ethical issues and conflicts.” The draft Code is now out for a 12-week consultation. The Code has four main principles:
- Putting Beneficiaries First
- Acting with Integrity
- Being Open
- Ensuring the right to be Safe
You can review it and submit comments here.
Dame Mary has published a blog about the consultation on the NCVO site.
