To ensure that all Veterans for Wildlife’s projects are successful and that the charity adheres to international best practice, we prescribe to various regulatory and advisory boards.

 

Project Management:

All projects within the various charity programmes are controlled and managed using the PRINCE2 (Projects IN Controlled Environments) methodology. PRINCE2 is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. Used extensively by the United Kingdom government, PRINCE2 is also widely recognised and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally. The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management.

Veterans for Wildlife are proud to be employing international best practice in the management of our projects.

 

United Nations Global Compact:

The UN Global Compact provides a universal language for corporate responsibility and provides a framework to guide all businesses regardless of size, complexity or location. It is comprised of ten principles relating to human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

Veterans for Wildlife are proud to participate in the UN Global Compact.

 

International Code of Conduct for Private Security Providers’ Association:

The ICoCA is a multi-stakeholder initiative initially established as a Swiss non-profit association. It is guided by the principles of the Code of Conduct. These include a commitment to good governance, respect for human rights and international humanitarian law, as well as a high standard of professional conduct.

The ICoCA strives to ensure the protection of and provide a remedy to victims of abuse by private security providers. The ICoCA endeavours to prevent excessive use of force; to prevent torture and other degrading treatments or punishments; to prevent sexual exploitation and abuse and gender-based violence; to prevent human trafficking, slavery and forced labour; to protect the rights of children, and to prevent discrimination. 

Veterans for Wildlife are proud to be observers of the ICoCA.

 

Armed Forces Covenant:

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve or who have served, and their families, which says that we will do all we can to ensure that they are treated fairly and not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives. The Armed Forces Covenant relies on the people, communities, and businesses of the United Kingdom to actively support it to make a difference. The government is committed to helping the Armed Forces community by working with a range of partners who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant. The Covenant brings together the government, businesses, local authorities, charities and the public to support those who serve.

Veterans for Wildlife is proud to be a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant
