Accountability and Reporting
Living with integrity is one the core values that underpin all we do. CBM UK is committed to maintaining the highest standards of honesty and accountability.
Any diversion of resources or misuse of power for personal gain compromises CBM’s core values and our accountability towards our beneficiaries, their communities and our supporters.
CBM UK is committed to maintaining an open culture, where employees and other stakeholders can report any legitimate concerns in confidence. We take all inappropriate behaviour and malpractice very seriously and are committed to investigating any concerns raised.
All CBM UK staff and associates are encouraged and expected to raise any concerns about our work with their line manager or supervisor. CBM UK has a Whistleblowing policy which sets out clear guidance about how staff, trustees or associates should report any incidents of suspected wrongdoing.
From a global perspective, the CBM Federation also has an anonymous, international online whistle-blower system which is available to all CBM employees, volunteers, suppliers and partners to report concerns around CBM programmes. Confidential information can be submitted online in English, French, Spanish and German.

CBM UK also welcomes feedback on any aspect of our operations and conduct as an organisation from our supporters or other stakeholders. Find out how to make a complaint or see how to get in touch with us by post, telephone or email.
