We place great value on the involvement of volunteers in our work; they enhance the range and quality of services we can provide by donating their time, skills, knowledge and experience. We aim to ensure that volunteers are treated fairly, feel valued and are thereby motivated to provide a professional quality to our services and to gain satisfaction from their efforts on our behalf. To protect both parties, volunteers are usually invited to commence working for a trial period prior to agreeing a longer- term arrangement. Volunteers are encouraged to make suggestions for improving the quality or range of the services we provide.
All our volunteers are given induction training which includes an explanation of Selsey Community Forum's activities and clear lines of communication as well as on-the-job training in the intended role. Training is also given prior to entering into any new role.
Selsey Community Forum's policies, practices and insurance arrangements give the same protection to volunteers as that
enjoyed by its staff. In addition, the forum will consult volunteers on any major policy or operational changes which affect them.
Helping to support others in the community can be very rewarding. If you would like to volunteer with us, please get in touch
at the Selsey Care Shop, 121 High Street or by telephone on 01243 201616 - we would be delighted to hear from you.
