Following the previously announced resignations of its Executive Director and Chair of the Board of Trustees, the United Kingdom Committee for UNICEF launched an independent, externally led review in October 2020 which has now completed.
The review was jointly commissioned by the multilateral organisation UNICEF and the UK Committee for UNICEF and conducted by Morgan, Lewis & Bockius UK LLP, a leading international law firm with strong UK charity sector and investigation experience.
Shatish Dasani, Interim Chair of the Board of Trustees for the UK Committee for UNICEF said, “We will be learning from the findings of this independent external review to ensure that we can fulfil our purpose of supporting UNICEF’s mission to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. The Board and management are committed to a safe, inclusive and enabling work environment in support of our work for children.”
The UK Committee for UNICEF has already reviewed and strengthened policies and processes and will continue to examine further best practice in light of the review.
As promised, the findings are published on the UK Committee for UNICEF website.
