Who we are

Our Values and Behaviours

and what to do if you see behaviours that don’t fit with our culture

At the Lord’s Taverners, we are driven by our purpose to empower and positively impact the lives of young people facing the challenges of inequality. We are led by our vision for every young person to overcome the challenges of inequality and achieve their potential. Our values and behaviours as staff, volunteers, members, stakeholders and partners are a demonstration of our commitment to leading an inclusive culture – a culture focused on the young people who participate in our programmes and the changes we can make to their lives. Not just for them but with them.

The charity is undergoing a period of transformation to ensure we’re fit for the future and in the best possible position to have an impact on even more young people across the UK through our cricket programmes. This year, as part of this transformation, we’ll be undertaking a project to develop new, shared values. This will be a collaborative process because we want to ensure that our values resonate and align with our participants, employees, members, Trustees, partners, sponsors, donors – all our stakeholders – and become embedded into everything we do and how we behave.

As a charity supporting thousands of young people, all our stakeholders have a responsibility to behave in a way that safeguards our participants, each other and maintains our charity’s reputation.

As guided by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) we will;

  • respect every individual’s dignity and rights to privacy and confidentiality
  • commit to challenging any instances of sexism, gender inequality and other power imbalances that leave some people at risk of harm
  • value and improve diversity in our governing body, workforce and volunteers.

These will form our underlying principles. We adopt a zero-tolerance approach when it comes to poor behaviour and urge you to let us know if you experience - or witness – behaviours that go against our principles, behaviours which are unethical and those which put our reputation at risk.

Please contact values@lordstaverners.org. Your email will notify the People and Organisational Development team and will trigger our complaints process, which is set out below.

In addition, we have a separate process for Safeguarding, should you wish to find out more about or safeguarding policies and processes, please visit the safeguarding page on our website.
