Training & Support

International Students engaged in an exercise during a workshop on Once you begin to volunteer, your project or organisation should provide insurance cover for your activity and ensure that your rights as a volunteer are upheld at all times (International volunteer rights link). They should provide you with a clear role description, details of what training is provided, as well as copies of any relevant policies (claiming expenses, child protection, protection of vulnerable adults, grievance, health & safety etc.). If you are working with a particular client group, you should also discuss appropriate boundaries with your organisation in order to prevent any client from becoming overly dependent on you and vice versa. There should be a designated person in the organisation who deals with volunteers on your project and who should be available to offer you guidance and information should you require it. You should also feel comfortable approaching other persons in the organisation in case the volunteer liaison person is not available or not an appropriate contact for your particular concern or query.
