World Vision UK Responds to World Vision US Employment Policy Decision

Thursday 27, Mar, 2014

Our colleagues in World Vision USA yesterday reversed a policy decision which had enabled Christians in same sex marriages to be eligible for employment. While this decision doesn’t change anything we do at World Vision UK, it has prompted questions.

World Vision UK does not discriminate on grounds of sexual orientation.  Individuals are hired and their performance monitored on job-specific criteria only.

World Vision UK and World Vision USA are part of the World Vision International Partnership which operates in 97 countries. It is a partnership of interdependent national offices, each one has different policies regarding employment practice, in line with local law, culture and customs.

This Christian partnership comes together with a core humanitarian mission to serve the world’s poorest children as a sign of God’s unconditional love. We serve all people, regardless of their faith, ethnicity, nationality, gender, disability or sexual orientation.

At WVUK we are saddened by any distraction to our core mission to bring hope to the world’s most vulnerable children.
