Managing Volunteers

Managing volunteers can be a hugely rewarding experience and voluntary staff can bring many benefits to your organisation

However, it is very important to understand the differences between volunteers and other members of staff and good management practice is vital in ensuring a positive experience for both you and your volunteers.

Voluntary Action Islington staff are experts on all aspects of volunteering and we are always on hand to help guide you on best practice and how to effectively manage volunteers in your organisation.
We are aware on some important issues organisations involving volunteers face and must deal with.
