Whatever size or type of organisation a local sight loss charity is, a range of policies and procedures are required to help ensure the charity provides the best support it can to people living with sight loss. These policies and procedures can also help ensure compliance with legal requirements.
Detailed here some examples of safeguarding policies and procedures completed and shared by one of our members (North East Sensory Services). We have made them available as Word documents so that you can easily use/edit. You will need to be a member to open them with your password. Please do not share them outside of the Visionary network.
NB – Please do not simply adopt and use these policies and procedures. You should treat any information as being intended for guidance only, and not as a substitute for professional advice. No responsibility for loss occasioned as a result of any person acting or refraining from acting can be accepted by Visionary. If you are in any doubt please contact us.
