Establishing fair procedures for ‘wrongly-treated’ volunteers

The Call to Action Progress Group set up by the Volunteer Rights Inquiry in 2011 has published its final report.

In a piece on NCVO’s website, the group chair highlights “two strongly held stances”: the need for a regulatory system to provide for fair treatment of volunteers and independent resolution of disputes, set against a belief by others that this would be impractical and disproportionately expensive and good management practice should be the answer instead. It also poses questions around the possibility of establishing an external appeals system.
