The BCV's Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct


Following extensive discussions the BCV agreed to adopt a Code of Conduct to ensure no volunteer is subjected to discrimination or unnecessary treatment and to lay down standards of behaviour expected from all members of the organisation.

The Code of Conduct is reviewed at the Annual General Meeting held in January.

The Bolton Conservation Volunteers (BCV) value diversity and we will ensure :

That we treat all fellow members fairly, with dignity and respect.
That we provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all volunteers.

  • The BCV will operate at all times without prejudice to race, age, ethnic origins, disability, gender, physical and mental health, status, religion, residency status, sexuality or cultural background.

  • All volunteers have a personal and legal responsibility not to behave in a manner that could be offensive to others. Trust and respect for one another are the greatest priorities in all out interactions. We respect, trust and encourage one another seek to celebrate the successes of both individuals and the team.

  • A BCV member represents the interests and promotes the aims of the BCV at all times and supports collective decisions.

  • On task, designated qualified first aiders must be alerted to any injuries or medical emergencies, the first aider will then decide on the best course of action. 

  • Volunteers leaving the task site early should inform one of the officers before leaving.

The aim of the Code of Conduct is to continue to ensure that all forms of prejudice and offensive behaviour are excluded from the BCV. Any volunteer who feels that they are the victim of, or witness to, such behaviour, must bring it to the attention of a BCV officer.
