Volunteering Good Practice - Why?

By definition good practice is a standard way of doing something that has been proven to achieve the best results.

But why should we adhere to good practice in volunteer management? 

It is important to get things right from the start.  Following good practice demonstrates a commitment to involving volunteers in the work we do and ensures we are consistent in our approach to all volunteers.  Good practice helps us maintain high standards, deliver a high quality volunteering experience and can enhance our reputation.

If you would like support in how you involve volunteers, our experienced volunteering team is here to help. We can offer free, confidential advice and support.

Let us make it easy for you

If you're a charitable organisation, community or voluntary group you may well be in need of volunteers whether it be on an ongoing basis or for occasional or seasonal work.
Rushcliffe Volunteer Centre can help you to find suitable volunteers when you register your organisation with us. To do this just click here to download a form, fill it and send it back to us by email or post. We will need you to sign a Data Protection form which we will send to you.
Once you've registered we can:
  • Put your volunteering opportunities on the national volunteering website, Do-it, to help promote them
  • Register your details on our Community Database so that you can receive monthly e-newsletters packed full of information and practical advice and e-bulletins to keep you up to date on what's going on for charities, volunteers and community organisations
  • Organise a face-to-face meeting with one of our Development Team to give you any advice you may require on funding, constitutions, training, marketing and governance.
