Comhlamh – Code of Practice for Sending Organisations

The Code of Good Practice has been developed as part of Comhlámh’s Volunteering Options Programme. It sets out standards for organisations involved in facilitating international volunteer placements in developing countries, focusing on the involvement of the three main stakeholders involved in any overseas placement: the sending organisation, the host project, and the volunteer. Additionally, it reflects a number of core values. These are: partnership, quality, security, encouraging appropriate volunteer attitudes, valuing volunteering, sustainability, solidarity, and the importance of contributing to development.
