Volunteers are the backbone of the not-for-profit sector, helping to deliver critical services to vulnerable groups in our community. Despite relying on the work of volunteers, not-for-profit organisations often lack the support and expertise they need. Organisations struggle to properly support their helpers. They have all the best intentions, but struggle to ensure recruitment processes are safe and fair both for volunteers and for the beneficiaries of their work.

That's why we developed our new e-learning module and national volunteer app.

These free interactive resources equip community organisations to understand their legal obligations in the volunteer relationship. 

The new e-learning module – launched last week as part of Volunteer Week – includes interactive activities, instructional videos and realistic scenarios to ensure organisations get the answers to all their questions about recruiting volunteers.

The web app offers a customised online learning experience to help not-for-profit boards and volunteer managers understand the key legal obligations towards their volunteers. Key topics include recruitment, safety, unlawful workplace behaviour, managing performance and ending the volunteer relationship.
