Volunteers and the Law - 25th October 2018

 Registration is closed for this event

Trainer: Christine Healey

What the law says about volunteering is fundamental knowledge for volunteer coordinators, senior managers and decision-makers. Clarify when the law says a volunteer becomes an employee, and what volunteers can and can’t do when claiming benefits. Insurance, Data Protection, DBS and Safeguarding, working with immigrants and asylum seekers are all covered in this session.

Learning outcomes  

Avoid stepping too close to boundaries between volunteering and employment. Give good advice to volunteers about any conflicts when claiming benefits. Design procedures to make sure your organisation stays within the law and embeds good practice in your volunteer programme.

Suitable for:  Volunteer coordinators and others who need to ensure the organisation complies with legal duty.


This course is also availiable in Leeds on 27th September 2018
