In all areas of our work, Women’s Health Concern is conscious of its duty in setting a sound example in furtherance of the CSR policies directed by the board of trustees of the charity.
Women’s Health Concern’s environmental policy is as follows.
Women’s Health Concern encourages its staff to take two working days each year to undertake voluntary/charitable work. This is endorsed by the board of trustees and monitored by the chief executive.
Women’s Health Concern allows its staff to take reasonable time off to act as Board Members (or similar) for charitable/not-for-profit organisations.
It is not appropriate for Women’s Health Concern, as a registered charity, to make financial donations to other charitable causes, except in pursuit of our own charitable objects.
Where appropriate, Women’s Health Concern makes information available to staff about methods of tax-effective giving to charities.
We work within our local communities and encourage our volunteers to participate in relevant schemes.
We encourage staff to take up Board/Advisory positions with local charities and third sector organisations.
In all areas of work Women’s Health Concern, as the patient arm of the British Menopause Society, is heavily reliant on volunteers.
Board of trustees
The Board is updated twice-yearly on corporate and social responsibility issues.
