Code of Conduct

International Relief Foundation members are required to commit to the following Code of Conduct. Authority to make changes to the IRF’s Code of Conduct rests with IRF’s Board of Trustees, which will take adequate steps to inform IRF members of any such changes.

“As an IRF member, our organisation opposes and shall not be a party to wrongdoing, terrorism, corruption, bribery, other financial impropriety, or illegal acts in any of our activities in the UK or our work overseas.

We shall take swift and firm corrective action, where appropriate, including reporting to the relevant regulator or authority. Whenever and wherever wrongdoing of any kind is found involving or which might involve a Trustee, employee, contractor or volunteer, and shall comply with guidance issued by the Charity Commission in reporting serious incidents.

We shall comply with all relevant laws and with Charity Commission guidance, particularly with the direction: ‘Protecting charities from harm: compliance toolkit. We agree to adopt such policies as IRF sees fit to put in place from time to time.”
