Operating Principles

Our Operating Principles

In seeking to fulfil our mission, our strategic priorities are set in a framework, which makes the following assumptions:

  • we are non-partisan and evidence-based
  • we will conduct principle-based fundraising and only accept funding from ethical businesses whose dealings are consistent with our mission and vision
  • we value sustainability, evidence and consistently enhance our work through evaluation
  • we value collaboration and cooperation
  • we value excellence, accountability, integrity, and transparency
  • we strive to be an independent resource for government in their pursuit of a comprehensive program which addresses the issues of child and adolescent overweight and obesity
  • We value equity, diversity and inclusion and strive to serve equity-deserving children and youth and their families.

Please note that the Childhood Healthy Living Foundation is not a funding agency. We are not in a position to provide grants to groups and organizations at this time.
