Volunteer support and management – A good practice guide

Welcome to our good practice guide for volunteering.

Volunteering is made easier when you get the right volunteers for the right roles; with what you are offering matching what volunteers are looking for, and this helps make your project successful. Key elements for volunteering are the planning, recruitment, support, development, and inclusion. You should also not forget checking and reviewing, so you know if you are achieving your goals.
