Code of Safe Conduct for Volunteers – Basics Bank

YFM highly values you as a volunteer and your involvement in the organisation’s work and hopes to encourage you in your support, contribution and assistance. Many of our services and activities would be at risk if it weren’t for yours or other volunteers’ help, and many of our children, young people and their families benefit greatly from it.

It is our duty to ensure that whilst you are engaged in voluntary activities for YFM that we care for you and ensure your safety. This information is to inform you of what measures we need to apply to ensure that this is the case.

As a volunteer, you MUST:

  • Adhere to any YFM policies and procedures that are specifically identified as relevant to your voluntary role, e.g. Health & Safety, Fire Safety.
  • Behave in a mature, respectful, safe, fair and considered manner.
  • Dress appropriately for the role.
  • Be aware of the guidelines regarding health & safety, and ensure you follow these guidelines.
  • Arrive on time for your shift.
  • Inform a member of the Basics Bank team if you are unable to make your shift
  • Record any accidents that occur in the accident log book, and pass this on to the Church’s Operations Manager
  • Respect confidentiality. If you hear any confidential information, this is not to be shared. If, however, you have cause to be concerned regarding a child protection or safeguarding issue, you must pass this on to Kelly.
  • Attend the relevant training as agreed with Kelly.

In submitting the code of safe conduct form you agree to abide by the above guidelines. If the Project Leader has reason to believe you are not following these guidelines, and if the issues cannot be resolved through discussion with you, YFM have the right to terminate the contract.

If you have any concerns during your time volunteering for YFM, you should inform the Project Leader. YFM also has a complaints procedure that you can access should you require it.

Many thanks for your support of YFM.
