Centre Policies

We’re developing a set of ‘model policies’ for consideration by Triratna Centres. They have been edited from policies used by Windhorse:Evolution, Karuna, the Birmingham and London Buddhist Centres, and others – we’re grateful to them for permission to reproduce them here.

Please note that you will need to check for yourself that the policies suggested here will meet your needs and that they satisfy current legislation.

The best place to look is on the Development Team’s ‘Google Drive‘, however some are available via direct links here – (we suggest checking both)

Conflict of Interest.
Equality and Diversity
Financial Controls
Fire Safety
Grievance and Disciplinary Procedures
Health and Safety
Protection of Vulnerable Adults
Membership of Triratna Charities

Click on any to download them.

They have been developed using the recommendations on the Charity Commission website, and ‘tweaked’ to suit the way Triratna Centres typically operate.

There is a good resource in www.bvsc.org which although Birmingham-based contains general information of value nationwide. You can also try www.volresource.org.uk/samples/checklst.htm which also has more policy samples than you would like to think were possible!

Here’s a link to the Charity Commission guidance regarding financial controls –www.charitycommission.gov.uk/publications/cc8.asp#10
