Volunteer Partnership ‑ Accessing Resources Project

- Hire agreement templates - Simple 'premises hire' and 'equipment hire' templates, and instructions for the use of those templates, have been created in partnership with the Crown Solicitor's Office for "low risk" hire arrangements. Agencies can use the template agreements, as described in the relevant instructions, in low risk arrangements for the hire of premises (eg meeting rooms, venues etc) or equipment (e.g. data projectors, safety kits, sporting equipment etc) to volunteer organisations.
