Code of conduct

This code of conduct has been established so that everyone can feel safe and welcome no matter who they are. We have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to, so that together we can reach our goals.

This code applies to everyone in Democracy Club

This includes employed staff, board members contractors, volunteers and anyone using our Slack, email list, issue trackers or attending one of our events or participating through one of our forums.

Principles of the code

We respect that other people have differing political views

Our organisation supports no political party. We understand that everyone involved in Democracy Club will have political views. These should be kept apart from the process of improving democracy for everyone in the UK. As part of Democracy Club you should respect that other people have differing political views. Democracy Club is not a forum for debating politics.

You agree to:

This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it’s intended - a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the community.

If things go wrong

As a member of Democracy Club we encourage you to speak up if you feel someone isn’t sticking to the spirit of this code. You can do this in confidence by getting in touch with Sym. Any action taken will be at their discretion, but may include reducing access to services run through Democracy Club.
