There are many things to consider when encouraging, recruiting and supporting volunteers in the arts and some of these might not immediately spring to mind if your organisation is new or inexperienced in managing volunteers.
The Volunteering in the Arts toolkit was developed by Voluntary Arts to provide essential guidance for arts organisations, small and medium-sized arts groups and other similar organisations who want to improve their support for volunteers.
There are two versions of the toolkit – one for England and one for Scotland. These were developed in partnership with Volunteering England and Volunteer Scotland to ensure they captured the best practice guidance from these specialist organisations.
The toolkit includes ideas, recommendations, checklists and case studies to help you better plan and implement a supportive volunteering programme for your organisation.
