What is the Volunteering Pledge?

What is the Volunteering Pledge?

We offer local voluntary organisations the chance to sign up to the Volunteering Pledge – a programme of on-going help and support from our Development Worker that shows that your organisation is committed to providing the best experience possible for your volunteers.

By signing up to the Pledge your organisation commits to principles around the following 5 specific areas of your volunteering programme;

  • planning
  • policies
  • recruitment
  • training
  • support

Following completion of the planning section (that all organisations will start with) your organisation chooses which area to focus on next, depending on what you feel is your priority. This helps to ensure that this is a really flexible programme tailored to your organisations priorities, needs for development and time constraints.

It gives you access to useful help, information and tools from ourselves here at Voluntary Action along with other local organisations, and provides you with a chance to think about the wider planning and implementation of how your organisation involves volunteers.

It is open to all organisations in Warrington – no matter how big or small! By signing up to the pledge your organisation is committing to offering the best service you can for your volunteers.
