Transitioning volunteers back into their roles

  • by Kate Bowman
  • July 2, 2020

Recently we have been hearing from Managers of Palliative Care Volunteer Services about the adjustments they’ve had to make as a consequence of the pandemic.

While it was appropriate for some services to switch to providing support via telephone or online, many services had to cease volunteering altogether.

Now that social restrictions are easing in NSW there is an opportunity for services to reassess their place and what they can offer. Before transitioning volunteers back into their roles, safe workplace principles must be implemented.

Justice Connect has released a fact sheet on managing the return of volunteers to the workplace that managers of volunteers might find useful. They also publish a suite of useful resources for people working in the not for profit space.

You can access their resources by clicking here.

The Centre for Volunteering also has resources available on returning to work and general COVID-19 resources. You can find them by clicking here.
