What is accountability?
Accountability isn't just about processes and systems – it's a core organisational value which governs:
- our behaviour
- the way we approach partnership
- how we go about implementing our work
We're working towards a set of cross-organisational accountability standards, against which we monitor and report our performance.
Who are we accountable to?
We refer to the following groups as our 'stakeholders', and they include:
- the poor and marginalised communities whom we exist to serve
- our partner organisations
- our donors and supporters
- our sponsoring churches
- staff and management
- our allies, suppliers, regulators and those we seek to influence
- the media and wider public
Find out what Christian Aid has done, and is doing, to protect the communities we seek to help, our partners and staff.
