Protect your volunteers @Dudley CVS #wiseupwednesdays #volmgttoolkit

- health

Health and safety is a key consideration when involving volunteers and they should feel safe whilst they are volunteering. Risk assessments are essential.

However, there are other ways to protect volunteers, such as ensuring they are not out-of-pocket and get their expenses reimbursed, plus ensuring their personal details are kept in a secure and confidential manner.

This section of the Volunteer Management Toolkit looks at key considerations and although there are only five questions in this section, they are essential to an effective volunteer programme.
