Non-tolerance of violence statement
The staff, volunteers and patients at Thames Hospice have the right to work and be cared for in a safe and supportive environment. Consequently, violence against any of our staff, volunteers or patients will not be tolerated and will be treated as criminal behaviour. This may involve referral to the police, culminating in criminal proceedings if appropriate.
Gift acceptance and recognition
Thames Hospice is extremely
grateful that donors choose to donate to Thames Hospice. We hold a Gift Acceptance and Recognition
Policy to ensure that we do not accept or solicit gifts that would be
detrimental to the achievement of the purposes of the charity, nor our
reputation. We may accept gifts for particular projects provided those purposes
are within Thames Hospice’s objectives and capable of being carried out. We
reserve the right to acknowledge gifts made as a ‘discernible gesture’. We will
not accept gifts where administration costs outweigh the value of the gift, nor
will we accept gifts for reasons outside the purposes of Thames Hospice.
If you are looking for a policy that's not listed here, or for further information, please email Juliana Luxton, Head of Governance and Quality.
