Prevention and Integrity Policy Home Cooking Foundation
The Home Cooking Foundation is very happy with all the voluntary home cooks affiliated with it and finds it important that everyone - both volunteers and employees - within the organization feels good and safe. In some cases, as a (voluntary) home cook, you will come to the home of applicants affiliated with the Home Cooking Foundation. Sometimes these applicants are both psychologically and physically vulnerable. It may then take a while to find good behavior. Each applicant and home cook is unique and has his or her own way of interacting with others. We respect this, we want to keep it that way and not be surrounded by rules too much. At the same time, it is necessary to have general rules that everyone must adhere to in order to avoid misunderstandings. We therefore consider it very important that the volunteers and employees affiliated with the foundation do not commit any internal or external integrity violations or unacceptable behavior. The Home Cooked Foundation sees it as its task to prevent all breaches of integrity or cross-border behavior and has therefore drawn up this prevention and integrity policy plan.
CODE OF CONDUCT AND RULES OF PROCEDURE
The Home Cooking Foundation considers a safe physical and social environment for (vulnerable) applicants and (voluntary) home cooks important. One of the tools to ensure an open, transparent and safe environment is to use a code of conduct that states what is and is not desirable in the dealings between (voluntary) home cooks and (vulnerable) applicants.
If you want to be part of the Home Cooked Foundation as a volunteer, we ask you to approve this code of conduct in advance. By this you declare that you know the code of conduct and will act according to the code of conduct at all times.
- The (voluntary) home cook provides an environment and an atmosphere in which the (vulnerable) applicant feels safe and respected.
- The (voluntary) home cook treats a (vulnerable) applicant in such a way that his / her dignity is not affected.
- The volunteer has a duty of confidentiality with regard to confidential information. An exception to this duty of confidentiality is made if the volunteer notices that the safety of the applicant is at risk.
- In principle, the volunteer complies with the agreements made with the applicant, unless there is a good reason. If due to illness or other circumstances no meal can be arranged by the volunteer or someone in his or her environment, this will be communicated as soon as possible to one of the employees of Home Cooked.
- In the event of complaints or violation of the above rules of conduct, the Home Cooked Foundation may terminate the code of conduct, with the result that the volunteer is no longer used as a home cook.
RECRUITMENT POLICY VOLUNTEERS
- One of the employees of the foundation has an introductory meeting by telephone with the volunteer or candidate, asking for motivation and explaining the rules, the hygiene and food safety policy and the objectives of the Thuisgekookt Foundation. We also consider the expectations of both parties (applicant and home cook) and how to deal with the confidentiality, behavior and safety of applicants.
- The candidate must be able to submit a Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG), or request it if he does not have one yet. The VOG is reimbursed by the Thuisgekookt Foundation.
- The candidate must take note of the code of conduct and rules of conduct established by the association.
