The Gift and Hospitality checklist mnemonic ‘GIFT’ is used as a reminder for the PCC and staff when declaring any gift or hospitality, as follows:

G enuine – is this offer made for reasons of genuine appreciation for something I have done, within any encouragement from me?

I ndependent – If I accept it, would a reasonable bystander be confident that I could be independent in doing my job?

F ree – Could I always feel free of any obligation to do something in return for the donor?

T ransparent – Would I be comfortable if the gift or hospitality was transparent to the public?

This simple checklist helps to make an informed spontaneous decision when offered a gift or hospitality.
