Volunteer Policies

Policies and procedures are an essential part of any organisation. Together, policies and procedures provide a set of guidelines that enable employees and volunteers make day to day decisions that are consistent with the aims and objectives of the organisation. They also ensure compliance with laws and regulations and streamline internal processes.

Consistency in practice helps you understand what you are responsible for, what is expected of you, and what you can expect from your supervisors and co-workers. This frees them up to do their jobs with confidence.

Please make sure that you have read and understood  the policies (listed on the right).  If you require further clarity then please contact your volunteer coordinator.

Once you have read and understood please sign our Policy Declaration Document (BF 303b).
