Macular Disease Foundation Australia (“The Foundation”) prioritises ethical behaviour, transparency, integrity and accountability in all its activities. Whistleblowing plays an important role in preventing misconduct and this is especially important for The Foundation who receives funding from governments and donations or grants from corporations, philanthropists and donors to provide support, advocacy and research for the macular disease community in Australia.
The Foundation prides itself on having an organisational culture that supports and encourages people to raise concerns about misconduct and that in doing so they will be protected. The Foundation Board, CEO & Executive are committed to maintaining a workplace free of misconduct and is supportive of whistleblowing. This policy has been prepared to ensure The Foundation complies with its obligations in relation to whistleblowers as set out in the Corporations Act.
