5. Health & Safety Statement

Our policy is to provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, equipment, and systems of work, for all our members, employees and volunteers, and to provide such information, training, and supervision as they need for this purpose.  We also accept our responsibility for the health and safety of other people who may be affected by our activities.

6. Volunteer Policy

Volunteering is central to what we do as the leading support service for voluntary organisations in Derby.  We help other organisations become better volunteer managers so we want to do the best we can to support and value volunteers that work with us.
