*This template is provided by the Volunteer Centre in Bexley to help organisations that may need support with setting up, or refreshing, their internal volunteer stream policies and support documents. You are welcome to use them. They should be rebranded and adjusted to your own’s organisation’s needs, and approved by your own trustees. Please be aware that the documents are not legally checked and you must take responsibility for ensuring that they meet your organisational requirements and are legally compliant*
