    Whether you don't yet have any volunteers or have been working with volunteers for a while, getting these basics in place will reap great rewards. You'll be able to head off any issues with volunteers not understanding their responsibilities and you'll be clear about yours.

    • What is Volunteering?
    • What are the mutual rights and responsibilities of volunteers and organisations?
    • How can I include volunteering when strategic planning?
    • What is a volunteer policy and why do I need one?
    • What should I include in volunteer role descriptions?
    • What are volunteer agreements and why do I need them?
    • What is the Volunteer Friendly Award?

    In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options with you.
