Transaid is committed to transparency and accountability, which is why we publicise our internal policies. We believe it is important to be open and honest to our stakeholders. Below you will find a list of Transaid’s internal policies available for download.
Anti-bribery and corruption
Transaid has a zero-tolerance to bribery and corruption in any form, and is committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems to counter bribery and corruption.
Anti-trafficking and modern slavery
Transaid has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our operations. Transaid’s Anti-Trafficking and Modern Slavery Policy is in line with the Modern Slavery Act, 2015.
Code of conduct
Transaid strives to achieve best practice above and beyond the rule of law within the various countries that the organisation operates in. Our code of conduct relates to the behaviour of all representatives of Transaid working in the UK and overseas, including members of Transaid staff, staff seconded to work for Transaid, consultants, trustees and volunteers.
Transaid is committed to Equal Opportunities and recognises the importance and value of diversity. This applies to all our programme activities, the relationships we have with partner organisations and our staff, volunteers, consultants and staff seconded from other organisations. Within this we recognise our social, moral and statutory duty with regard to people with disabilities and do all that is practicable to meet this requirement in a responsible way.
Drugs and alcohol policy
Our drugs and alcohol policy is created in response to the Misuse of Drugs Act (1971), and is designed to help protect workers from the dangers of drug and other substance abuse and to encourage those facing drug related issues to seek help.
Transaid’s ethical standards play an integral part in the internal decision-making process when considering new relationships with third parties; this could include donors, implementing partners or grantees. When working with partners or grantees, Transaid will conduct the appropriate due diligence procedures.
This Policy sets out the principles and key ethical considerations for Transaid when working with third parties and particularly when considering accepting funding.
Transaid’s safeguarding policy is based on the UN Convention of the Rights of a Child (1989) and the standards developed by the INGO’s ‘Keeping Children Safe Coalition’.
