A6: Ethical principles for charities: Why they are important, and how you can use them

126 visualizações

Publicada em

Over recent years charities have increasingly come under criticism for not going far enough in demonstrating their ethics in everything they do. Whether it’s fundraising or service delivery, campaigning or working with corporate, the public expects charities to always reflect their charitable mission and values.

Rules and procedures are important, but often what are required are moral judgements. The difficulty of these can be reduced by the reference to an ethical framework or principles.

During this workshop, participants will:

Be given an overview of the ‘Charity Ethical Principles’ developed by NCVO
Hear from other sectors about their experience and the benefits of using a code of ethics
Have an opportunity to discuss how to use the principles to overcome their own ethical dilemmas
