Code of Conduct

In 2016 the board of directors produced a Code of Conduct, specifically for Board members, Support group hosts, other volunteers, and when we can afford them, paid staff. Obviously having paid staff to support our organisation is still very aspirational, but if we had not started dreaming and planning to set up DAI, maybe people without dementia would still be speaking for us.

Perhaps the most important messages in these guidelines are the following:

It is expected that DAI Board members, support group hosts, volunteers and staff will:

  • At all times act in the best interests of the DAI
  • At all times act in a professional manner, including on social media
  • At all times put the DAI ahead of personal interests and feelings

It is expected that a DAI Board member, support group hosts, volunteers and staff will not:

Set themselves up in competition in nay way to any or all DAI support, services or activities:

  • Act on behalf of DAI without Board approval
  • Vent personal views on social media or in any public arena about individuals, the organization, or the Board members of DAI
