Code of Ethics


As volunteers, employees, board members and representatives of United Way Australia, we have a responsibility to uphold high ethical standards – both for ourselves and for the benefit of our communities.

We believe these standards go beyond compliance with laws and regulations – calling us to fulfil higher obligations as stewards of public trust.

Conducting our activities with honesty, integrity and in the best interests of United Way Australia (UWA) is essential to preserving the work that United Way Australia does, its reputation and its brand.
