Volunteers and the Law - 19 March 2020

 Registration is closed for this event
This course is suitable for anyone who works with Volunteers and especially those who manage volunteer programmes.

Course Description

Legislation relating to volunteer programmes is very different from employment law. This half-day session aims to ensure that you know all the essentials to avoid those pitfalls.

Please read our cancellations section below.

Learning Outcomes

You will discover:

  • What you can and can’t offer to volunteers
  • What provision you must make for insurance, risk assessment and DBS checks
  • How to avoid setting up a ‘contract’ with volunteers – and why that’s important
  • What is allowed when volunteers are claiming benefits


With fewer than 10 working days notice you will be charged the full course fee and this applies to organisations that have been awarded a bursary. For more information please refer to our full cancellation policy here.
