We provide HR advice and guidance on a range of topics to help voluntary and community organisations deal with HR matters effectively.
We also provide examples of HR policies through publishing our staff handbook.
Please be aware that these policies have been scrutinised and approved by the NICVA Executive Committee for use as NICVA policies alone, ie they are not intended for use in other organisations. We strongly advise that before implementing any HR policy in an organisation it should be agreed by a board or management committee and that the full implications of the policy are considered.
