What other policies should a board approve?

It is good governance practice for a Board to review a list of policies and procedures that the organisation must follow. This list is sometimes referred to as a ‘Compliance Log’, listing how the organisation complies with legislation and best practice, typically with reference to the relevant policy, recording when the policy was last updated and approved by the Board.

Core policies and procedures typically approved by a Board include:

  • Fundraising

  • Staff Handbook

  • Health and Safety

  • Conflicts of Interests

  • Safeguarding

  • Data Protection (GDPR) and Privacy

  • Complaints

  • Environmental
