An induction is a way to introduce a new volunteer to your organisation. This helps them feel part of the team and helps you make sure they have all the information they need to have a great experience.
A volunteer agreement makes it clear what the volunteer can expect from the organisation and what, in turn, the organisation expects from the volunteer. It usually sits alongside a role description and volunteer policy.
Understanding the needs of all of your volunteers and making sure they feel valued and respected increases the likelihood of volunteers choosing to commit for longer periods of time.
A role description is basically a document that outlines what a volunteer will do, what they need to be to do the role and what the volunteer will get out of it.
It is the main foundation that all the other building blocks for volunteering sit on. Your policy will outline clearly to all staff, volunteers and users of the service, why volunteers are involved.
This guide will help you understand what we mean by ‘impact’, what to think about before you start, methods you can use and resources that can help you measure impact.
If there’s not a procedure in place to manage problems when they come up then it’s easy for even small things to grow out of control. Having guidance on what is acceptable, that explains how you will respond to a challenging situation is important to protect everyone.
Volunteering is a two way process. The volunteer needs to decide if your organisation and the role is right for them and you need to decide if they’re right for the role.
