The Nolan Principles
Whether you’re fundraising, taking part in an event, part of the Grants Committee or a CSR Representative; we expect the principles below to be adopted to create a culture that helps us achieve The Davies Foundation’s charitable purposes.
Should act solely in terms of the public interest.
Avoid placing themselves under any obligation to people or organisations that might try inappropriately to influence them in their work. They should not act or take decisions in order to gain financial or other material benefits for themselves, their family, or their friends. They must declare and resolve any interests and relationships.
Act and take decisions impartially, fairly and on merit, using the best evidence and without discrimination or bias.
Accountable to the public for their decisions and actions and must submit themselves to the scrutiny necessary to ensure this.
Act and take decisions in an open and transparent manner. Information should not be withheld from the public unless there are clear and lawful reasons for so doing.
Exhibit these principles in their own behaviour. They should actively promote and robustly support the principles and be willing to challenge poor behaviour wherever it occurs.
