Want to take your group further?

As well as having a constitution that covers the rules of the group, it is also a very good idea to have some written documents on three important matters; equal opportunities, health and safety and protection of vulnerable people. In fact, if your Friends group is expecting to apply for grants, funders will ask for copies of policies covering:

Equal opportunities /diversity / equality
Health & Safety
Child Protection / Protection of Vulnerable People

Don’t worry! Sample policies and help to write your own is on hand!
