New information resources

ID-100129605A new set of resources for volunteers, not for profits and businesses who want to encourage their employees to volunteer have been launched during National Volunteer Week 2013.

They include a set of 16 fact sheets and three guides which complement each other – bringing together not for profits, employers and volunteers with a consistent set of information about how to create successful volunteering relationships and outcomes.

The three Guides include:

  • Guide for volunteers
  • Guide for not for profits
  • Guide for employers

There are fact sheets especially for volunteering organisations:

  • Involving Volunteers
  • Best practice for Volunteer Programs
  • Essential Volunteering Policies and Procedures
  • Recruiting Volunteers
  • Orientation for New Volunteers
  • Confidentiality and Intellectual Property
  • Insurance and Liability
  • Managing Volunteers for Retention
  • Organisations and Legal Structures
  • Protecting the Privacy of Volunteers
  • Risk Management

And fact sheets for both volunteers and the organisations that need them:

  • Money and Volunteers
  • Police Checks and Working With Children Checks
  • Health and Safety for Volunteers
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Dealing with Conflict

The resources, available in hard copy and on-line, were made possible with the financial support for production by Exxon Mobil.
