Managing Volunteers: A Good Practice Guide

The Citizens Information Board has recently released a new edition of Managing Volunteers: A Good Practice Guide. This guide gives information on good practice in volunteer management for the wide range of voluntary and statutory organisations that involve volunteers in their work.

The Guide starts by introducing the reader to the broad concepts of volunteer management and then proceeds to work through  all the stages of volunteer management from drawing up policies and preparing for volunteers, to recruitment, selection, induction and training, day to day management and dealing with any problems that may arise. A list of resource materials, including useful website are referenced at the end of the guide.

The Guide incorporates useful checklists and templates of policy documents that can be adapted by individual organisations to help them develop volunteer policies suited to their needs.

The Guide is available from the Citizens Information Board website
