Key policies & procedures

As part of the volunteer registration process (volunteer agreement) all FoodCycle volunteers agree to follow all FoodCycle policies and procedures.

As a Leader, we ask that you familiarise yourself with some key policies and procedures that are particularly relevant to your role. Please find these listed below, along with links to view/download the documents. Once you have read all the documents, please tick the box below to confirm (you will need to be logged into your volunteer account to do this).


  • Volunteer Policy and Procedure - this applies to all FoodCycle volunteers and was created to help volunteers understand the vital role they play within the organisation and the rights and security offered to them by FoodCycle. It covers everything from volunteer recruitment and safety to conduct and responsibilities. You only need to read pages 1 to 6, but feel free to also read the further information provided in the appendix if you would like to!

  • Guest Data GDPR Policy and Procedure - this applies to the personal data of our guests (service users). It sets out FoodCycle's commitment to data protection, individual rights, and obligations in relation to personal data, and how we intend to meet our legal responsibilities for data protection. Please pay particular attention to pages 7-9, which contain specific guidance for volunteers collecting guest information.
