We value the trust of our donors, charity partners and corporate supporters. We hold ourselves and our partners to the highest standards and maintain compliance with all regulatory bodies.
United Way Global Standards
Every year, United Ways around the world conduct a Global Standard of Excellence self-assessment of governance, financial management and impact in the community. These standards were developed collectively in 2006 by more than 100 volunteers and professional leaders across 31 countries. They describe a path towards excellence and define the essence and key characteristics of a United Way. United Way UK integrates these standards into strategic planning and uses them as guideposts for evaluating organisational performance.
We are equally rigorous when it comes to working with other organisations.
Our Give Local grant making programme is run in line with best practice. We ensure that 100% of donations made through this programme are spent within the community in which they were raised, in partnership with effective and efficient small charities. We carry out a rigorous due diligence process with all partners.
