Joining the organisation

In this section, we'll provide guidance to help you welcome new members of staff to the organisation, ensure you've outlined your expectations so you can make a good assessment of how well they're meeting them and describe what you should have in place to support them.

Templates, model policies & checklists

Our templates are here to give you a good starting point for making sure you have the policies, procedures and checks in place that you need, and we hope you find them helpful.

You should adapt them to suit your own organisation and, if necessary, get some advice to make sure they meet all your legal and regulatory requirements. Read more about using SCVO's templates.

You can find more useful documents in our full list of templates and checklists.
