Policies and Procedures 

Our Trustees ensure that we have policies and procedures in place which govern how we operate, ensuring we are meeting our legal requirements and can maintain a consistent and transparent approach to all our work.
These policies are reviewed annually by our Trustees. 

Our policies and procedures are divided into three areas:

Organisational policies
which include Health and Safety Policies, supervision policy and employment policies and procedures for staff

Finance policies
 to ensure we are meeting our legal and charity requirements on finance and protecting public monies.

Service policies
 which include our safeguarding policies, data protection policies and access policies.

Our organisational and finance policies and procedures are internal documents, but our service policies are available here:
