RAN is Safe + Sound

Safe + Sound!http://rva.org.uk/safe-and-sound

Reading Advice Network are proud to announce that we have achieved the "Safe + Sound governance mark", assessed and awarded by Reading Voluntary Action to those voluntary organisations in the Reading area that meet the criteria for good goverance.

The RAN Board had to prove that we govern the organisation in an appropriate manner, that our policies and procedures are in place for the protection of our Members, our volunteers, staff and Trustees, as well as maintaining standards that protect the most vulnerable in society with all our actions.

RAN would highly recommend the process, the support we got from RVA and the fact that 'Safe and Sound' is a robust local standard, parallel to our own RAN Quality Standard.
