Policies and Procedures

It's always good practice to have policies and procedures in place.  These are often called for if you are thinking of applying to an organisation for funding.  We have a wide range of these in place for our members and these are available for you to download and edit for your own purposes.  We have covered the following subjects and to access them just Login and go to the Members Section Policies and Procedures page.

Articles for the Blind FREEPOST

It is a requirement of the law that Royal Mail treats articles for the blind as first class post delivered free of charge. There are, of course, rules to ensure that this is not abused. Basic information only can be found at www.RoyalMail.com  and searching for Articles for the Blind.  TNF also has a Fact Sheet.

The full rules can be found at  http://www.royalmail.com/you-home/your-community/articles-blind 

TNF recommends that care be taken to ensure that address labels used in delivery pouches are clear and that post-codes are properly displayed. By doing this the likelihood of next day delivery will be greatly improved.
