PLAN for your Volunteers
Planning your volunteer involvement in key to success! Find below tools and resources designed to assist you.
NB: A key aspect of planning involves ensuring the safety of everyone involved - please refer to Keeping People Safe for information about Integrity Checks & Safe Volunteering Guidelines.
- Manual for Managers of Volunteers
- Volunteer Role Description - Template
Having a clear role description helps keep volunteers focused and motivated. Conversely, volunteers without role descriptiosn are more likely to feel unsupported in their work, inadequately trained and without opportunities to participate in decisions that affect them and their work. This is why it is vital to develop a well worded role description for your volunteers. Use this template to get started, and let us know if you need a hand.
- Volunteer Role Description - Generic Set
- Confidentiality Agreement - Form of Words
If your site/centre/program have specific confidentiality requirements, please use this Confidentiality Agreement Form of Words to highlight considerations for your volunteer(s). An example of a specific consideration could be that your location is a silent address which should not be disclosed, so as to ensure the safety of those seeking assistance.
- Project Brief - Template (coming soon)
This project brief template will help you document the project your volunteer(s) will be undertaking. This is particularly helpful for virtual volunteering, when you are not directly supervising the project/ activity your volunteer is working on.
- Activity Approval Form (coming soon)
All activities that are new and/or outside the usual scope of your site, service or program's activities must be approved by the appropriate TSA representative. Use this form to document your activity's scope, risk & safety plan. For Corporate Volunteering activities, use the Corporate Activity Risk & Safety Plan form found in the Corporate Volunteering section.
