As a volunteer, you are giving your time for free, so it's right that you know what to expect from an organisation in return. In a voluntary role, you can expect:

  • To learn about the organisation and what it does
  • A clear outline of duties – this is usually in the form of a written ‘role description’ or ‘task profile’
  • Training and guidance relevant to your role
  • Appropriate support or supervision
  • To be safe and covered by insurance to carry out the tasks you’ve been given
  • To be made aware of the organisation’s policies and procedures, including who you should talk to if you are unhappy
  • Reasonable out of pocket expenses reimbursed
  • To feel valued by the organisation and able to contribute to its development.
