Gallions Housing Association Statement on Anti-Corruption and Bribery
This is a statement by the Board of Gallions Housing Association Limited (“Gallions”) in respect of the organisation’s commitment to meet its responsibilities under the provisions of the Bribery Act 2010 (which came into force on 1st July 2011).
The Gallions Board and Executive Team will not tolerate bribery or corruption from employees, board members and committee members of the Association or anyone working on our behalf, including contractors. We are committed to carry out our business transparently and fairly and, therefore, we operate a zero-tolerance policy towards bribery.
As a Registered Provider of housing with charitable status, Gallions is committed to eliminating corruption and bribery and achieving the highest standards of governance in all its activities.
We have undertaken a risk assessment in order to identify where the organisation might be vulnerable to bribery and an action plan will be drafted in order to mitigate the risk areas identified.
We have implemented a training programme for staff and Board Members and are updating staff induction programmes and policies and procedures to reflect the requirements of the Bribery Act 2011.
Gallions welcomes any feedback concerning this statement and its policies and performance concerning bribery. Please contact Jane Rothery (Company Secretary) on 0300 123 1237 if you have any further questions.
