Resource Guides on Volunteering

The Good Practice Guide to Involving Volunteers gives you an overview of what you need to consider to attract, involve and develop volunteers more effectively. It can help you to think through areas such as:

  • What will they do?
  • What skills might they need to bring to the role?
  • How do we write a role description? Click to role description template
  • Where would they be located – in your office, at home or at external events?
  • How are they going to get there – is there public transport?

The Guide to the Disclosure and Barring Service explains the current legislation, what roles need to be checked and how to undertake the process.

The Involving Volunteers - Checklist helps you see at a glance whether you have considered everything.
