Policies and Procedures

Policy Feedback Form

Our policies and procedures provide the framework within which we as an organisation operates. They define what our organisation does and how we do it.  Our clear policies and procedures support effective decision making and delegation because they provide guidelines on what people can and cannot do, what decisions they can make and what activities are appropriate.

We like to include all those people using our service, in the writing and reviewing of our policies and procedures.  If you would like to be a part of this process, please use the 'Policy Feedback From' link above.
