Why have policies?

Having policies is the way most committees work so that they can communicate their rules to their members and staff, implement and review them.    

How can Community Action Fareham help?

We have a complete suite of policies that are kept up-to-date for use as models for your own, plus a general fact sheet “Why have policies”.

It is important that your committee works through the policy and makes it applicable to your own situation; do not be tempted to just change the name of the group! 

Make your policies good and effective, not POTS (Policies on Top Shelves).    

Harbourside Training offers courses on writing policies in general and on specific policies.
