Supporting the Volunteering offer

Just as paid staff do, volunteers need a strong strategic narrative from the organisation they choose to give their time to, so that they can understand where it’s going and how they fit in and it is important that they have a voice throughout the organisation. Effective training not only equips volunteers with the confidence and skills to carry out their role, but it also encourages a sense of commitment because it emphasises their value to you.
