Guide to Volunteer Policies and Procedures

Policies and procedures are essential to ensure your organisation works fairly, effectively and consistently with volunteers

If your organisation relies on volunteers, it is important to have policies and procedures in place which set out a clear, consistent framework for your volunteer programme. 

There are four main documents which come under the umbrella of volunteer policies and procedures:

  • Volunteer strategy
  • Volunteer policy
  • Volunteer agreement
  • Volunteer handbook

Each of these is discussed in further detail in this guide.
