Senior staff member

Management Committees can struggle to effectively manage the most senior staff member in the organisation. This can be for a variety of reasons, sometimes the most senior staff member has been with the organisation a long time and is more experienced than some members of the committee.  Generally the most senior staff member will have more information about the day to day running of an organisation.

Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults (Volunteer Now)

Volunteer Now was commissioned by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS), to develop this publication, which contains minimum standards of best practice and guidance for organisations working with adults at risk in the voluntary, community and independent sectors.

Volunteer Now developed the publication in consultation with a Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Advisory Group comprising representatives from key voluntary, independent sector and statutory agencies with experience and expertise in their field.
