Like any other organisations, we have developed policies and procedures to help guide our work. Some of these are legally binding on us. For example, we are a Registered Scottish Charity number SC022497. That means we are subject to strict control and some monitoring of how we use our various resources. It also applies to every other charity registered in Scotland. We believe that is a good thing.
You can read how we both comply with the Charity and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 and later legislation by visiting our Charity Status page here. Copies of our Annual Reports and Financial Statements for the last three years are available online for your information. You will also be able to download them if you wish.
Protecting children and vulnerable people.
Our Church life can bring us into contact with both children and young people as well others who may also be classed as vulnerable. Obviously, we want to protect them from other people whilst they are in contact with us either on our premises or in contact with our staff and volunteers. We have set up strict policies and procedures to protect them at all times. You can read more about them on this page on Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable People
With that very fast growing number of thefts of data, the goverment has brought out various pieces of dat protection legislation. They are designed to ensure organisations work at protecting any information we have. This includes information such as names, addresses etc that we have on our members. This also includes information we have on people, attending various clubs etc. We do not store such information on line and have no plans to do so. However, we have already drawn up a Data Protection Policy to protect that information getting into unauthorised hands. See our Data Protection Policy here.
Other policies may be added here from time to time as they are developed. So please check back from time to time.
