Code of Conduct

Every Partos member subscribes to the Partos Code of Conduct. For Partos, the organisational quality of member organisations is essential naturally because of its relationship with effectiveness and efficiency, but also in consideration of integrity and public trust. A code of conduct that reflects the values according to which Partos member organisations want to act is an essential tool in this regard. There is also a compliance procedure. All the documents on this page can also be found here in Dutch.

Partos Code of Conduct 2019 (EN)



Charities, humanitarian aid and development organisations hold integrity in high regard. This is also expected of them. For years, various measures have been taken to work on acting with integrity within organisations and to do justice to all those with whom and for whom we work. In the Netherlands, in addition to the code of conduct, as required by Partos for its members, we have a supervisor in CBF (Dutch central fundraising office) with strict standards belonging to the Qualification System. In addition, we work with Goede Doelen Nederland to support organisations with learning programs on integrity. Individual organisations often have their own codes of conduct, confidential advisors, and internal hotlines.

Partos members are required to set up an integrity system. The Integrity System Guide explains how such a system works and can be set up within an organisation. It is a document full of examples and tools.
