Volunteering— It can work for you - Volunteers can make a big impact to your organisation

 

Volunteers are a great asset to organisations, why? Well there are a few obvious reasons such as cost saving, increased capacity, enable staff to focus on core tasks.

 

But there are also many more ‘not so obvious’ reasons for involving volunteers that add value to your work or organisation, these are just a few examples:

 

 Bringing diversity

 

 Provide a link to the community

 

 Helping to engage with hard to reach clients/customers

 

 Engaging with customers and clients differently and may form more open relationships with them

 

 Bring new skills, languages and qualities to your organisation that can be shared
