Trust's Articles of Association
Research Grants Committee Code of Conduct

All members of the Research Grants Committee (Trustees, External Advisers and Executive Officers) must abide by the principles and procedures set out in the Dunhill Medical Trust’s Conflict of Interest Policy. It is, however, recognised that there are times when specific conflict of interest issues can arise in respect of grant applications and other grant-related matters that apply particularly to the Research Grants Committee. A code of conduct for dealing with these is therefore set out below as an appendix to the main Conflict of Interests policy. In formulating this code, Charity Commission guidelines and Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) guidelines have been taken fully into consideration.

Equality and diversity policy

We value the diversity of our staff and stakeholders and the benefits that differences can bring. Accordingly, no eligible applicant, trustee, adviser, employee or external stakeholder should receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of the nine protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010.

Our equality and diversity policy is in three parts:

  • The Trust as a funder.
  • The Trust as an employer.
  • The Trust as a partner.

Complaints procedure

The Dunhill Medical Trust accepts that organisations and individuals should be able to make complaints regarding any unsatisfactory aspects of its working practice. The purpose of this procedure is to set out a process for dealing with complaints which is fair and aims to resolve issues which may arise as quickly and reasonably as possible. The Trust aims to ensure that its grant-making reflects best practice and reserves the right to determine how it carries out its work. It does, however, accept that from time to time issues might arise which may need to be resolved as a result of the Trust’s interaction with grant applicants and grant holders, and other external individuals and organisations.

Anti bribery policy

Anti bribery

Charity Commission guidance states that “the Commission expects trustees to comply with the law on bribery and to implement good practice in accordance with their duty to protect the property and reputations of their charities”. The Bribery Act 2010 applies to individuals and ‘commercial organisations’; according to guidance from the Ministry of Justice, this includes charitable companies carrying out not-for-profit business. As such, The Charity Commission requires charities with income in excess of £1 million to have an anti-bribery policy statement.
