National Volunteer Guide
Not-for-profit Law has produced a National Volunteer Guide for use by Volunteer Involving Organisations across Australia. It provides an overview of the key legal obligations organisations owe volunteers and provides practical examples, template documents and tips to assist in their understanding.
Volunteering Australia was pleased to consult on the Guide, ensuring that it aligns with our National Standards for Volunteer Involvement, the best practice guide for volunteer involvement. These resources fill a key gap for our sector, with many Volunteer Involving Organisations unaware of the protections they have under the law, and the legal obligations they owe their volunteers.
