    Course Content

    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.

    Included in the course:

    • 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?

    Here are some of the very positive comments made by previous participants, who attended this training last year.

    • "Good support services offered by FVA"  
    • "Good to think about things from a different perspective"
    • "Chance to discuss questions"; "Liked group discussion"
    • "All very informative".
