Resource: NCVO Knowhow checklist on policies and procedures

National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has refreshed its Knowhow checklist page on common policies and procedures for voluntary organisations.

This includes guidance and templates to assist in writing policies for your own organisation. It’s essential to have a health and safety policy for any organisation with more than five employees. But we also recommend at a minimum that organisations have written policies and procedures in:

  • Safeguarding (if working with children or vulnerable adults)
  • Data protection and particularly preparing for the major law reform of GDPR
  • Financial procedures manual and a reserves policy
  • Equality & diversity
  • Board polices such as risk management, conflict of interest and trustee expenses
