Encouraging good practice for your organisation:-

It is important to spend time creating robust systems that provide a professional structure around the recruitment and management of volunteers of all ages. Cutting corners can lead to disillusionment and a lack of commitment from your volunteers, which could lead to a poor service to clients, that may lead to a reduction in future volunteers. Getting things wrong can also cost your organisation financially by way of legal expense due to civil litigation.
