Running your Club

Volunteer Management

Volunteer Management can assist clubs and associations in managing, supporting and retaining its volunteers.

A Volunteer Management Plan is great way for clubs or associations to manage, support and retain volunteers.

Checklists help to confirm that a club or association’s Volunteer Management Plan covers all the requirements of assisting volunteers. Items on the checklist ensure that a club or association gives purpose to a volunteer role, implements recruitment policies, recognises volunteers, provides volunteer opportunities and so on.

We encourage clubs and associations to develop their own Volunteer Management Plan by using the following Volunteer Management Plan checklist.

Volunteer Training

It is important for a club or association to provide opportunities for volunteers to gain skills that are necessary for their position. It is also important to up-skill volunteers with training and development.

Volunteering Australia provides online training to volunteers including certificates in active volunteering.
