Volunteers and the Law

March 26th 2019, 10am-1pm, The Voice Radio Station,  Belle Meadow Court, Albert Lane, Barnstaple, North Devon EX32 8RJ

Are you clear about the legal status of your volunteers and the responsibilities you have towards them? 

Volunteers aren’t employees, and the voluntary, informal nature of volunteering can be a confusing area; this course looks at the relationship between volunteers and employment law and seeks to help you get the balance right.

This course will enable you to understand volunteering and the law in relation to a variety of issues, and ensure that the policies and practices which define your relationships with your volunteers are consistent with the law. We will cover:
•             Volunteers’ rights
•             The difference between a contract and an agreement
•             The impact of legislation and policy on volunteering
•             Volunteer expenses & reimbursements

What people have said about our workshops:

“Thank you very much, I’m going away really enthused with a clearer idea of how we can fundraise!”

“Every part of the workshop was really useful, Thanks.”

“The two members of staff who attended your course found it really useful – which of course, is why I had wanted to book someone else on it!”
