DIB wishes to maintain high standards and accountability in our work, both our national work in Denmark as well as our international work in other countries, and we therefore encourage open communication. DIB's Code of Conduct can be accessed here. We want to continuously improve, and therefore you are welcome to submit a complaint, feedback or comment.

Who can complain?

DIB’s whistleblowing and complaints mechanism can be used by anyone, including employees, partners, members, volunteers, beneficiaries and donors. Complaints may be submitted here (complaint@dib.dk eller klage@dib.dk) og vil modtages af sekretariatsleder og bestyrelsesformand. Hvis det ønskes at sekretariatslederen ikke skal modtage klagen, kan klagen direkte sendes til bestyrelsens the Chair or Vice-Chair

However, we encourage comments and complaints about our work to be raised and discussed with the responsible staff as close to the activity as possible.

Can I report anonymously?

You can choose to report anonymously, but we encourage you to provide your name and contact details so that we may contact you directly if necessary.

DIB ensures anonymity in the processing to the greatest extent possible. If you want to ensure that you are anonymous when you report, please note the following:

  • Do not report from your work computer if you are employed by DIB.
  • Do not use a computer connected to DIB's network.
  • Do not share your personal information.

Sensitive complaints

A sensitive complaint is typically a complaint or suspicion of misuse of funds, criminal offenses and sexual exploitation as well as violation of DIB's policies, guidelines and Code of Conduct.

Sensitive complaints are always treated confidentially and only a few people who need to know about the complaint are involved.

Protection of your personal data

If you provide your name and contact details or other personal data in connection with your complaint, DIB will of course process your information in accordance with applicable data protection rules, read more about this in DIB's privacy policy here. Sensitive complaints are always treated with the utmost confidentiality here.
