Community Services Division Policies and Procedures

Staff are advised to always check that they are using the correct version of any policies rather than referring to locally held copies. The most up to date version of all Community Division-specific policies can be found on this webpage.  

The date for review detailed on the front of all our policies does not mean that the document becomes invalid from this date. The review date is advisory and the organisation reserves the right to review a policy at any time due to organisation/ legal changes.
