Policies and procedures

The Trust aims to be as open as possible by providing access to internal instructions, manuals and guidelines for dealing with all aspects of the business of running the Trust if it helps the public to understand how decisions are made. 

However, this would not include information that might damage the operation of the Trust for example details of security systems.

Some of our policies can be viewed below.
