  • Members Code of Ethics
    Members shall observe the highest standards of professional conduct and ethical behaviour in all of their activities. By upholding such standards, members enhance their own standing as disability professionals and increase public and disability sector confidence.
    As the conduct of an individual member can reflect upon the wider profession of disability professionals and upon ADDC membership as a whole, the Code sets out what are deemed to be appropriate standards of professional conduct.

    The Members Code of Ethics is contained within the ADDC Governance Framework.
