Policy Templates

Policy Templates

WVA offers a range of policy templates ready to be adapted to suit your organisation's needs.  They are formatted to easily add your organisation's information and branding.

The following checklist is only intended as a guide, this list is by no means complete or what every organisation needs, however, it can be used as a starting point.

A policy is a principle or rule that guides decisions toward a particular outcome. In this case, it is generally your organisational approach (or position statement) to a particular issue.

A procedure follows on from a policy and can be a separate document or a section of the same.  It looks at how your policy will be put into practice.
