We want to support you to ensure that your volunteers have the best possible volunteering experience and provide information, and support on all aspects of involving volunteers e.g. sample policies, handbooks etc. Whether it’s a simple query or something more complex, we are always happy to help. Why not look at our A-Z of what Volunteers Want, for hints and tips on what volunteers really want out of their volunteering?
Support is offered to any volunteer-involving group, whether you work in the private, public or voluntary, community and faith sector. We also support social and community enterprises to recruit volunteers if appropriate.
