Rush of Recruiting Volunteers
However, many people these days are only interested in volunteering for one shift a month - so whilst the numbers are going up we still may have a few shifts that we cannot fill.
My hope is that within six months we are at full volunteer capacity!
Thanks to the North East Valley Bowling Club for hosting us for this session.
Our process for recruiting and inducting volunteers is very thorough, I have stepped you through the process below.
Step one: Information session
1.5 hour session includes learning about:
- the Hospice
- the role available
- the commitment we require
- their own motivations for volunteering.
Step two: Training day (10am-3pm on a Saturday)
- More about Hospice
- More about the Role
- Policies relevant to volunteers
- Boundaries and self care
Step three: Orientation Sessions with experienced volunteers
Step four: Rostered on!
