Now updated for 2023

RDA Policies provide a framework for running your group.  These policies must be taken and adopted by your group, where relevant.

All policies will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis.

Where possible RDA will aim to maintain an annual schedule of reviews and updates, however from time to time we may need to make more regular changes in response to changing legal requirements or where we have identified an urgent change is required, but we will then notify Groups of these changes.

You can find the most recent set up updates for 2023 in our 2023 RDA Policy Review & Updates
