Managing Volunteers

We support people who recruit and manage volunteers as part of their day to day role. We can provide you with training on recruiting and managing volunteers, including young volunteers, and information and training around your legal responsibilities toward volunteers.

We can also support you with volunteer inductions and training, support and supervision. The NCVO has some helpful guidance for supporting and managing volunteers.

Volunteer Policy

We recommend you have a volunteer policy which clearly sets out your expectations of your volunteers and how you will support them. It should form the basis of your entire volunteer programme, giving cohesion and consistency to all the elements in your organisation that affect volunteers (recruitment, expenses, health and safety and so on).

A volunteer policy is the foundation on which your organisation’s involvement of volunteers should be based. The NCVO provides some useful guidance on writing a volunteer policy.
