Perfect to wear with your “little black dress”.
In accordance with the Governance-Management framework, this area includes:
Governance-level policies – these are the policies which are developed, monitored and revised by the Committee (although this responsibility may vary from organisation to organisation)
Governance-level templates, fact sheets and manuals – information and documents to support the work of the neighbourhood house Committee.
GNEACC Houses are also invited to contribute quality examples of documents developed by their own organisations so these can be shared with other Houses via GNEACC Online.
Comments and suggestions for this resource are also welcome.
Download Governance Policies
The GNEACC Network currently has on file over 280 sample polices. 80 of these have been checked to ensure they are suitable for neighbourhood houses and uploaded to the GNEACC Policy Bank. New policies are uploaded regularly and many more policies are available from the GNEACC Networker. If you can’t find something you are looking for, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 03 5826 5492 or 0428 942 095 for more information.
To make use of this section please follow the steps below.
Check the policies in the Policy Bank to find what you need.
Download each policy by clicking on the policy name and saving it to your computer (the policies are in Microsoft Word format).
Adapt the policy to suit your organisation.
Please keep in mind that there are no generic policies that will suit all organisations. Thus it is important to check each downloaded policy carefully as some wording may not be relevant to your particular organisation. You may need to delete or change some details to ensure the policy accurately reflects how your organisation operates.
Governance-level policies should be checked and adapted by the committee.
Circulate each draft policy to relevant people for comment and note their feedback.
Adopt the new policy at the next committee meeting and note this in the minutes.
Ensure all relevant staff, volunteers and contractors are made aware of each new policy and how it affects their particular role.
