Code of Conduct for Leaders

Wednesday 18th December 2019

At its recent meeting the BrigadeExecutive agreed a code of conduct for leaders to follow. The Code of Conduct maps out what
is expected of you at all times. By following it you will be able to check that you are always doing the right thing and behaving in the right way.

All leaders are asked to make sure they are aware of this new code and to comply with it at all times.

What happens if I don’t follow the code?
If someone believes you have acted in a way that breaches this code they are entitled to let the Brigade know and the BB will investigate the complaint. If you breach the code you may have your membership restricted or withdrawn.

Complaints Policy
The Brigade Executive has also agreed a new Complaints Policy, this can be found on the website at regulations/.

As a BB leader you should always:

  • be a good role model with behaviour and an attitude that are in line with our object.
  • comply with all UK / RoI laws and safeguarding procedures.
  • make sure you follow Brigade policies and regulations and re-read them from time to time.
  • be responsible and accountable in the way you perform your role.
  • ensure all BB finances are used for the correct purposes and properly accounted for.
  • be fair and treat everyone with respect and dignity in accordance with our equal opportunities policy.
  • respect others’ privacy in line with our policies and guidance.
  • communicate with others in an open and respectful way whether in person, by phone, writing or digital media.
  • work together with other BB members, their parents/carers and members of the public to promote the work of the Brigade.

As a BB volunteer you must not act dishonestly or do anything which brings (or is likely to bring) the Brigade into disrepute or have a negative impact on the Brigade or its reputation.
