These principles aim to support charities, their governing bodies, and those who work and volunteer in and with them in recognising and resolving ethical issues and conflicts, and make charities a safer place.
This is intended as an enabling document that draws together and underpins what many charities do already, and which all charities aspire to do.
These principles set out a framework for the ethical execution of charitable purpose, regardless of the charity’s size, type or area of operation. They can help charities in their decision making and in developing relevant policies and procedures.
All charities should proactively champion ethical behaviour and reflect and apply their charitable values in any activity they undertake, in addition to meeting their legal and regulatory requirements.
Governing bodies, staff and volunteers should actively consider the principles and how they can be integrated in all their work and decision making.
