Volunteer Policy

statement of policy


The South Dublin County Volunteer Centre exists to promote support, recruit and train volunteers and place them in relevant agencies in the South Dublin area. We recognise that in order to achieve our goals we need to involve volunteers in our own work too. It is also essential that we present a model of good practice in volunteer management.

We regard volunteers as a valuable resource and encourage them to get involved at all levels of the organisation and within all appropriate activities. We aim to train, support and supervise our volunteers to the best of our abilities, and to act quickly and fairly if difficulties arise.
