This course is a basic introduction to volunteering and the law. The session will help you to clarify the legal position in relation to volunteers. How do you ensure that you are supporting and developing volunteers while avoiding the risk of creating contracts and falling foul of employment law?
OCVA’s Volunteer Co-ordinator will use practical exercises, real life examples and current advice to guide you through the process of acquiring volunteers and developing volunteer agreements.

The course will be run online using Zoom.
