The management committee is responsible for developing policies and procedures within the organisation and making sure they are followed. However, they should first consult members, staff, volunteers and anyone else who may be affected by them. You can get help and advice from the organisations listed in the appendix or from your legal advisers. When developing policies and procedures, it is important to have a process in place for their development, approval, review and revision, and for education and training. We suggest the following guidelines for developing written policies and procedures (policy manuals).
