Volunteer Management Course 5, Avoiding Legal Issues and Managing Risk in Your Volunteer Programme
Created: 18/04/2018, Updated: 25/05/2018
When: 09.30am-1.00pm, Tuesday 24 July 2018 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
We asked participants who attended these sessions earlier in the year, what they liked most in the training - here's what they said:
"Talking over ideas and methods"
"I have always found the trainers to be very knowledgable re their topics"
"Chance to network and work with others"
"(topic) made easier to understand"
"Meeting new people and being involved in group activities"
You have a moral responsibility to ensure that volunteers are protected from physical, financial and emotional harm arising from volunteering. This course will support your organisation by ensuring you have the tools and the knowledge to ensure you manage risk effectively.
Included in the course:
• Duty of care and the law;
• Your rights and responsibilities;
• What is risk?
• Risk identification and management;
• Risk register;
• Risk assessments;
• Health and safety policy;
Who should attend
Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation.
In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options.
We ask that you give us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of cancellation. If you do not attend and either do not cancel or give less than 48 hours’ notice, then your organisation will be charged £25.00.
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Notes from the session will be sent to all participants who complete a post-training evaluation form, which will be e-mailed to you.
