Gordon Young- Are your volunteers at risk? – Stawell Neighbourhood House
August 24, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Free & Open to anyone who works with volunteers.
Volunteers provide a crucial and often under-valued contribution to Australian society, especially in rural communities. However volunteering, particularly with vulnerable groups, can place them and those they volunteer with at a risk.
Professional ethical standards assist volunteer leaders by offering protection against the risks with a framework to effectively assist others. The workshop focuses on current best-practice standards and how they apply volunteering. The workshop will assist you to develop a decision making approach that ensures both yourself and those you assist get the best possible outcomes.
