Co-operative Assistance Network Limited

Policy Framework

CAN's policy framework reflects our commitment to the Co-operative Values and Principles and our own mission.

We present this policy set as part of our commitment to Open Source working.  They are not copyrighted - you may copy them and modify them for your own purposes - but note that they are not designed as model policies or templates but are presented as examples of actual working policies.  Many of them have evolved over a number of years, some of them are a bit rough round the edges and they may be revised at any time.

We do not advocate that you simply copy these policies, either individually or collectively, rather use them as discussion documents for your own policy development. Your co-op is not the same as our co-op.  None of these policies comes with any guarantees and you must take full responsibility if you adopt any or any part of them.

Please note also that this policy set does not include purely internal policies such as pay rates, expenses and bad debt handling.
