In brief, to be eligible to register, your organisation will have to ensure that the volunteer will be:
welcomed whatever background they come from
supported and supervised
not used to replace paid staff
reimbursed out of pocket expenses e.g. travel (if you have paid staff)
Advertising your roles
Before advertising your roles, it’s good to really think about why you’re involving volunteers, what you want to achieve and how you will do that in a way that benefits your organisation, your staff and volunteers.
