The church today launched a code of ethics for volunteers aimed at giving voluntary work to take a holistic approach encompassing both the volunteer as well as the beneficiaries of the various voluntary organisations within the Archdiocese of Malta.
This code, which can be read in the pdf link below, was drawn up by the Diocesan Office for Voluntary Work. It is intended to help both the volunteer and the voluntary organisation.
However, there could be instances where certain organisations might need to amend certain parts of it.
Any such amendments could only be made with the prior written authorisation of the director of the Diocesan Office for Voluntary Work or his designate.
The code was this morning presented to Auxiliary bishop Charles Scicluna during a seminar at the seminary.
