Volunteer Contract Form
Volunteer agreements can be utilised to set out each an organisation’s commitment to its volunteers and what it hopes for from its volunteers. They act as a reference point for volunteers as well as a reminder for the organisation that it need to meet the standards of superior practice that it has set.
Normally in an agreement an organisation may well commit:
- to provide a complete induction and any coaching necessary for the volunteer part
- to supply regular help to the volunteer in their part and also a named contact for the volunteer who will support them within the function
- to treat volunteers in line with its equal opportunities policy
- to reimburse out-of-pocket costs
- to supply insurance cover for the volunteers
- to implement great overall health and safety practice.
A volunteer agreement may well expect volunteers to:
- comply with policies and procedures relevant to volunteers along with the part the volunteer is undertaking, eg equal opportunities, health and security, and confidentiality.
- meet mutually agreed expectations about the part, which include the volume of time the part is expected to take.
