Involving Volunteers: Good Practice Guide

The Involving Volunteers: Good Practice Guide is a series of introductory information sheets designed to help organisations find and manage volunteers more effectively.

This guide is for anyone who finds themselves with responsibility for volunteers, but particularly if managing volunteers is not the main part of your role.

  • Perhaps you organise events and only need volunteers occasionally?
  • Perhaps you run a small group or club and would like to get more people to help you?
  • Perhaps you are starting a new project involving volunteers and want to get things right from the start?
  • Perhaps you don’t involve volunteers at the moment, but think it might be a good idea?

If this sounds familiar, then the guide is for you. Click the link below to download the full guide:
