To safeguard your organisation and volunteers you should have Insurance; Equality & Diversity Policy and Volunteering Policy in place before you start recruitment. It’s also good practice to have Safeguarding and Health & Safety Policies.
You should provide your volunteers with a role description or a handbook (to clarify issues such as training; expenses or DBS requirements), and ensure they sign a Volunteer Agreement.
