A staff and volunteer policy is a framework that helps define the role of staff and volunteers within the organisation.
It can help to demonstrate your organisation's commitment to its staff and volunteers, showing that care and thought have gone into how they are treated. It ensures consistency and allows both staff and volunteers to know where they stand and where they can turn to if they feel that things are going wrong.
It encompasses everything from recruitment to supervision. You should consult as widely as possible with both volunteers and staff at all levels of the organisation in developing your policy.
