Code of Conduct

We believe all our volunteers are highly responsible. We would still like to set out our expectations of your conduct to ensure that all of your volunteering experience is positive.

  1. As a volunteer you are an ambassador for all members of Cyber Volunteers 19. You should therefore behave in a professional, helpful and courteous way at all times.
  2. We operate a zero-tolerance policy for bullying, harassment or otherwise abusive behaviour shown towards other members. Anyone participating in these kinds of behaviours will be immediately removed.
  3. The purpose of volunteering in these troubling times is to help and support healthcare providers, care homes and similar charities. Whilst we appreciate all the help self-promotion and company promotion is not the main aim. People using the volunteer programme solely for this purpose will be asked to leave.
  4. Any communications with other volunteers and members of the healthcare community should be professional, respectful and honest at all times.
  5. Volunteers should not break the CMA or any other local or international laws and should adhere to all relevant legislation and data protection laws, such as GDPR.
