Good Practice Guidelines

These guidelines have been written by Salford Volunteer Centre with the aid of guidance from the national volunteering body - NCVO (Volunteering England).

Salford already has some excellent examples of good practice in volunteer management to draw on. These guidelines aim to make such good practice accessible to an even broader range of voluntary organisations, community groups, faith groups, social enterprises and cooperatives that involve volunteers. This dissemination of good practice will bring us closer to realising our long term vision, in which:

  • Salford is a place that fully values its volunteers and their contribution

  • There is an improved standard of volunteering experience for all people who volunteer

“Volunteering has been a life saver for me; it has opened a lot of doors. I am now in part time employment. This time last year this was an impossibility because of my low self-esteem and lack of confidence, now things are really looking up”.
