Policies and procedures checklists
Policies and procedures provide the framework within which an organisation operates.
The policies and procedures an organisation needs will depend on a number of things such as the type of work they do and the size of organisation.
These documents must reflect both the organisation and its service/s to be effective and easy to implement.
Whilst some policies and procedures are considered best practice to have in place, others are a legal obligation, for example:
- Equal opportunities
- Data protection
- Health and safety.
On occasion, funders may ask to view specific policies and procedures (e.g. Safeguarding Adults) as part of their funding application.
