Hospice Care Kenya believes that the welfare of children or vulnerable adults is paramount and that they should be protected from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect, maltreatment or exploitation, including sexual abuse (UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989), Article 19).
HCK believes that everyone we come into contact with, regardless of age, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation or ethnic origin has the right to be protected from all forms of harm, abuse, neglect and exploitation. HCK will not tolerate abuse and exploitation by its Trustees, staff or volunteers, nor by the activities of other individuals, organisations or agencies with whom it is engaged in pursuance of its charitable aims. This includes zero tolerance on bullying and harassment.
