Governance Code

World Vision Ireland operates in full compliance with the CRA Governance Code. We are committed to continued compliance with the core and additional standards contained within the CRA code and undertake to review and publicise our compliance with the principles and standards of the code on an annual basis.

Since being established in 1983, World Vision Ireland has endeavoured to use the resources entrusted to us efficiently and effectively in order to deliver maximum impact to the children and communities that we serve. 

World Vision Ireland has adopted the World Vision International definition of ‘accountability’: The commitment of an individual or organisation to account for its activities and promises made, provide information, listen, and empower its diverse stakeholders to actively participate and hold to account, accept responsibility for its decisions, disclose the results in a transparent manner, and uphold the highest ethical behaviour in our operations. It also includes the responsibility for money or other entrusted properties to be used in the most efficient and responsible manner possible.
