Volunteers are relied upon by many organisations/charities to assist them with a variety of tasks, including sustaining church programs and activities. The organisation has a duty of care to provide the same level of support and training as it would for employees.
Volunteers are covered under Work Health Place and Safety regulations and should be suitably insured against injury. It’s important that managers of volunteers understand the rights of volunteers and their obligations and responsibilities to them.
This policy guideline is focussed solely on the deployment of people attending the church that have expressed an interest in volunteering to serve in one of the church’s ministry programs.
