The confidential advisers (CA) at via are there for members, as a point of contact for tinappropiate behavior within via. The CAs work independently and confidentially. Furthermore, the CA is independent, and therefore is not a member of the board. Besides the board, a CA is the first point of contact for anyone who has comments, questions or signals regarding inappropiate behavior and other integrity violations or wants to have a conversation about a situation. The CA is available to victims, the accused and others involved. They do not have to be members of the association, provided they are involved with the association in some way. Furthermore, the CA is not responsible for proper follow-up actions around signals. The CA handles information confidentially, and will therefore not share information with others, unless this is necessary for proper follow-up of the signal. This may include, for example, the police. A CA is emphatically not a formal reporting point or complaints handling point. If follow-up from the association is desired, the person must make a report to the board of the association.
