Volunteers are an essential workforce for many museums. The Accreditation Standard expects all museums to have an appropriate workforce with effective employment procedures and roles in place to meet its responsibilities.
Information to support effective volunteer development, policies and procedures is available from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO). The NCVO KnowHow NonProfit website provides advice and support and is the ‘go to’ place for social learning in the voluntary sector. It has a community of over 38,000 people who share knowledge, best practice and experience. The website provides anything from expert advice or top tips to how-to guides and online training courses on any area of voluntary sector management.
