Code of Conduct

A code of conduct can be contractually binding and linked to the employment or volunteer contract. It sets out the behaviour expected of the employee/volunteer/trustee/contractor. They are often embedded within the safeguarding policyand can be called ‘code of conduct’, ‘core values’, or another term that illustrates how the organisation expects those affiliated with it to behave.  Below are some example codes of conduct. 
 
1. Save the Children's code of conduct can be found online.  
 

Anti-Bullying and Harassment  

Safeguarding encompasses more than child and vulnerable adult protection,  bullying or harassment at work can constitute a safeguarding incident. Safe organisations should have robust anti-bullying and harassment policies in place that provide clear reporting and resolution processes.  

1. Gaia Education's Anti-Harassment Policy (pdf) can be found online.

Whistleblowing 

Safe organisations should have a whistleblowing policy that enables employees/staff/beneficiaries to raise concerns about the organisation, or, individuals within the organisation. These policies are not lengthy, but they must provide clear reporting processes.
