  • Volunteer Management Course 6, Avoiding Legal Issues in Volunteer Management

    Created: 14/07/2021, Updated: 09/09/2021

    When: 10.00am-1.00pm, Thursday 25 November 2021
    Where: Zoom Call, Anywhere with an internet connection, Online, KY6 2AL
    This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action
    This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.

    Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    We asked people who attended similar sessions earlier in the year, what they liked most about our training - here are some of their comments:

    • “Dividing people into smaller groups via the use of breakout rooms in Zoom went very smoothly and allowed us all to have a say in the given topic.”
    • “Very informative.”
    • “A lot of helpful information and tips for volunteer management. Good to hear from others and advice they had.”
    • “The case studies were interesting and made it a little easier to get my head around some difficult questions”
    • “All of the sessions were well facilitated; information was clear and the training providers approachable and informative.”

    Course Content

    That volunteers are part of your organisation voluntarily is obvious, but do they ever feel an obligation to remain involved? Organisations therefore need to consider ways in which they may (consciously or unconsciously) be creating a 'contract' between themselves and their volunteers. This course will help you to identify any possible  pitfalls and how to avoid them.

    Included in the course:

    •    The difference between volunteers and other categories of people in an organisation
    •    The impact of the Equality Act 2010;
    •    The most likely areas of any legal challenge
    •    Issues to consider in your documentation, routines and recognition/reward

    Who should attend

    Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation. Your organisation should be providing a service in Fife.

    Cancellation Policy

    Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event.   A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate. 

    Additional Information

    Notes from the session will be sent to all participants who complete a post-training evaluation.
