Developing Volunteer Opportunities

What volunteer opportunities do you have?

We suggest that you think about what you need your volunteers to do by completing a Role description. This will help you when you’re  ready toadvertise the role and give you something you can talk through with potential volunteers when they apply. You can download a suggested template here: Role Description.

If your volunteer vacancy would appeal to and be suitable for a young person (18-25 or under 18) then we suggest you put this in your advert.  Student volunteering programmes can also be a great resource.

If you need help with creating your role descriptions then come along to a free advice surgery or book on the 'Inspire Your Volunteers- creating Strong teams' training.  If developing volunteering is a part of your group’s wider development you could consider applying for free support under the new futures bucks programme.
