Conflict of Interest Policy

Last updated: 17 November 2023

This policy aims to maintain the highest level of integrity and independence in all decisions related to the appointment of staff members and trustees at the Coulsdon Community Partnership (the "Site", "we", "us", or "our"). It applies to all employees, volunteers, and trustees. For purposes of this Conflict of Interest Policy, "Conflict of Interest" mean a situation where an individual's personal interests could unduly influence their professional decisions, and "Existing Business Relationships" means prior or current professional or commercial engagements between an individual and the organisation or its stakeholders.

Please read this Conflict of Interest Policy carefully.
