Volunteer Policies

All volunteers offering their services will have their offers dealt with promptly and be given a warm welcome, which reflects the value we give to volunteers.

It is recongnised that volunteers play an essential part and their efforts contribute highly to the success of the organisation.

The involvement of the volunteers will be encouraged wherever and whenever possible.

The role of the volunteers will be clearly defined. In every situation that a volunteer is involved, an agreed statement of tasks should be drawn up and volunteers should be adequately prepared for the tasks which they will be undertaking.

Volunteering will never be seen as a substition for paid employment. The work of volunteers will be that of a supportive, complementary nature alongside paid staff. A written agreement of assigned tasks should be considered so that there is no confusion between the roles of volunteers and paid staff.
