Good Practice Guide for Volunteer Involving Organisations

Good Practice Guide

This good practice guide provides advice and guidance on best practice in the use, management of and support to volunteers. Each section of the Guide can be downloaded separately, and new sections will be added over the coming months.

There are a number of examples relating to the content appended to each section.  However it is suggested that these are not used without careful amendment to make them relevant to the needs of your own organisation.

The content of the Guide is based on information and advice provided by Volunteering England’s Information Service together with local information.
