Information for Volunteers

If you want to start volunteering the first thing you should do is think about the type of organisation you think would suit you. What are you passionate about? Which organisations are local? What types of skills do you have?

A quick checklist of things to find out includes:

  • Is the organisation a not-for-profit?
  • Does the purpose of the organisation match your own values and beliefs?
  • Will you be insured as a volunteer?
  • Is the volunteer role clear and specific?
  • Can the organisation provide you with written information about its purpose and activities?
  • Are you going to enjoy the tasks involved?

As with any paid employment, when you take on a volunteer role you have rights and responsibilities.

You should always make sure you are working in a healthy, safe environment where you are free from discrimination and harm.

You have the right to expect to be consulted about organisational changes that may affect you, have the right to say “no” and to be valued by the organisation.

As a volunteer you will be expected to fulfil your duties and commitments to your role and be respectful to staff and other volunteers. It is also important you are punctual, supportive and willing to ask for help when you need it.
