What can I expect as a volunteer? 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.
