Not-for-profit volunteering resources

Your organisation owes its volunteers certain legal obligations and these are sometimes hard to work out.

Not-for-profit Law has produced a National Volunteer Guide for use by volunteer-involving organisations across Australia. It provides an overview of the key legal obligations organisations owe volunteers and provides practical examples, template documents and tips to assist in their understanding. The Guide is available for download below.

The Guide is divided into six parts and covers a glossary of common terms, understanding the differences between employees and volunteers, your organisation’s legal obligations, protecting volunteers, recruiting, and organisational issues.

There is also a free e-learning module on volunteer recruitment that you may find helpful, and a webinar on drafting a great volunteer agreement.
