Training for volunteer managers
Our workshops are designed to be interactive and to give you the chance to try out new ways of working in volunteer management, recruitment and retention.
Volunteers and the Law
Wednesday 26 April 2017, 10am–1pm
Do you want to know more about the legal requirements for organisations that involve volunteers?
This practical half-day session will provide an introduction to the key areas of law that affect volunteers and Volunteer Involving Organisations. It will cover health and safety, risk assessment, insurance, safeguarding and criminal record checks. It will explore issues of employment law, such as the difference between contracts and volunteer agreements, volunteer rights and guidance on expenses, the National Minimum Wage and volunteering while on welfare benefits. It will also consider the restrictions on different types of volunteers (e.g. young people, non-UK citizens). It will help you to identify the next steps for your organisation in terms of the minimum legal requirements and good practice.
Our training programme is kindly subsidised by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH) via a Mainstream Grant. This enables us to offer discounts to certain organisations. Cost starts at just £30. Book your place.
