The Volunteering Team has been asked about a number of issues relating to volunteer management during the Covid-19 crisis, including keeping volunteers safe, and guidance on carrying our specific roles such as befriending.

We have compiled a summary of Volunteering Resources, Guidance & Advice that we hope you find helpful, but please contact us on volunteercentre@voluntarynorfolk.org.uk  if you need information about a topic that isn’t covered here or if you would like find out more about a particular issue.

Managing your Volunteers

Voluntary Norfolk has many years’ experience of managing volunteers on behalf of organisations including Norfolk County Council, Clinical Commissioning Groups and other healthcare providers.

Our Volunteer Services Team can help you recruit, train and deploy volunteers for roles in your organisation, advising on best practice and relevant legislation. Using specialist data management software we are able to record and monitor volunteer applications, progress, training and activity.

If you would like to discuss how we can help your organisation manage and make the most of your volunteers, please contact Clare Evans, Head of Volunteer Services.
