Volunteering and the Law: What you need to consider when engaging volunteers

If you’ve never been on a webinar, then why not try this one. It’s from the NCVO – The National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Basically a webinar is an on-line presentation/conference. When you book you recieve a confirmation e-mail then you just click on the link (at the appropriate time) and the presentation happens on your computer screen. You can ask questions. Sometimes you will be able to download documents. 99.99% of webinars are no cost.

This free webinar will look at the legal implications volunteer managers need to be aware of when working with volunteers. The presenter will discuss the key areas that you need to consider when engaging with volunteers and how you ensure that you are supporting and developing volunteers whilst avoiding the risk of creating contracts and following good practice.
