The Vision, Mission, and Value Statements form the foundation for all activities in an organisation. Together, they provide direction for everything that happens in the organisation, keep everyone focused on where the organisation is going and what it is trying to achieve. And they define the core values of the organisation and how people are expected to behave. They are not intended to be a straitjacket that restricts or inhibits initiative and innovation, but they are intended to guide decisions and behaviours to achieve common ends.
In addition to these 3 identity statements, the Code of Ethics defines fundamental principles, rules, policies and guidelines which ensure that the decision-making, the functioning and the daily practices within the organisation are ethical and fair for everybody, and comply with international and national standards for non-profit associations and for organisations dealing with children and young adults.
