Whistleblowing Policy

Caritas Singapore is committed to have an open and transparent culture with the highest standards of integrity, honesty, and accountability.

In keeping with this, our Whistleblowing Policy aims to provide a means through which volunteers, donors and the general public could, in good faith and without malice, raise legitimate concerns about any serious wrongdoing/malpractices particularly in relation to fraud, controls, and ethics.

Examples of areas of concern include:

  • Impropriety, corruption, acts of fraud, theft and/misuse of company’s properties, assets, or resources
  • Conduct which is an offence or breach of law
  • Serious conflict of interest without disclosure
  • Breach of Caritas Singapore’s policies
  • General malpractice such as immoral, illegal or unethical conduct
  • Concealing information about any of the above malpractice or misconduct
  • Any other serious improper conduct that may cause financial or nonfinancial loss to Caritas Singapore or damage its reputation
  • Manifestation of intention to mislead, deceive, or fraudulently influence any internal or external auditor in connection with the preparation, examination, audit or review of any financial statements or records of Caritas Singapore.

Confidentiality of Identity

Every effort will be made to protect the whistleblower’s identity, which shall remain confidential unless disclosure is necessary. In which case disclosure shall be made with consent, and to the extent necessary and only to such persons on a need-to-know basis.
