|In order for your volunteers to continue to volunteer within your club / organisation, they must find the |
whole experience enjoyable, so how do you keep volunteers interested once they have started? Listed
below are a few suggestions:
| ||Support & Supervision |
Regular opportunities for support and supervision are important and can help to identify overload and
burnout, which may result in volunteers leaving the club. It is also important that volunteers receive
regular feedback on the effectiveness of their work so that any issues can be dealt with as they arise.
Provide a clear volunteer policy stating how your club will support its volunteers, detailing how expenses
can be claimed.
There are a number of external training courses that currently exist for volunteers. Volunteers should
be provided with all the training they need in order to carry out their role. Please ensure that any
training offered is relevant to the role / tasks that the volunteer undertakes within the club.
If training is offered to a volunteer that is not relevant, it can be deemed as a payment for the work
they have done, therefore creating a contract of employment. If training is offered, please ensure that
it is open to all volunteers and that it is not dependent upon them having volunteered for a set period
