In Redwoods we recognise volunteers as an integral part of the organisation. Their contribution supports our Purpose, Ethos and Values, and complements the role of paid staff.
Redwoods Volunteers are valued for:
bringing additional skills and new perspectives to the organisation
enabling us to be more responsive and flexible in our approach
championing our cause within the wider community
enhancing the quality of our work
enhancing the wellbeing of the people we support
fostering a sense of community within the organisation
We will ensure volunteering benefits the organisation, the people we support and the volunteers themselves.
Volunteers are not used to replace staff and we are committed to offering a flexible range of opportunities and to encouraging a diverse range of people to volunteer with us.
We recognise that there are organisational costs associated with volunteer involvement and seek to ensure adequate financial and staffing resources are available for the development and support of volunteering.
We recognise our responsibility to organise volunteering efficiently and sensitively so that the valuable gift of the volunteer’s time is best used to the mutual benefit of all concerned. Volunteers are given training appropriate to the tasks they are asked to undertake.
