Charity Ethical Principles

The NCVO (National Council for Voluntary Organisations) published an important set of Charity Ethical Principles in January 2019.

The SIS Management Committee discussed the 4 Principles and decided to adopt them at their meeting on Valentines Day 2019!

  1. Beneficiaries First
  2. Integrity
  3. Openness
  4. Right To Be Safe

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.

The Principles are written as an enabling document – https://www.ncvo.org.uk/images/documents/policy_and_research/ethics/Charity-Ethical-Principles.pdf

The Principles complement SIS Values – https://sussexinterpreting.org.uk/our-vision-mission-and-values/

They also complement the Nolan Principles in Public Life, which are referred to in our membership documents –  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-7-principles-of-public-life/the-7-principles-of-public-life–2
