Volunteers and the Law - postponed until further notice

How well do you know the formal legal requirements that surround working with volunteers? Recent changes to the law mean that even experienced volunteer managers might benefit from a refresher. This session operates as a simple guide to the need-to-know information and clearly identifies the requirements you must follow when working with volunteers.

If you have policy or procedural responsibility for volunteers, this session could be invaluable. It is also ideal for anyone developing or managing volunteer programmes, whether they are new in post, or want opportunity to study and reflect on current standards.

It provides a better understanding of: 

  • the legal difference between employees and volunteers
  • what safeguarding requirements need to be in place
  • the legal requirements that individuals need to meet, in order to volunteer for your organisation
  • what should you consider in terms of agreements, contracts and honorary contracts
  • how equalities legislation impacts on volunteering
  • how new legislation could affect your existing and future volunteers
  • how to feel confident about managing volunteers’ data, in line with data protection legislation (including GDPR), and ensure that your volunteers understand their responsibilities with regard to this

Learn how best to fulfil your duty of care, reduce risk to your organisation and fully comply with the law, so that you can confidently build better relationships with your volunteers.
