Determining the best model for the management of Spontaneous Volunteers in your local government area

DOWNLOAD RESOURCE

Assists Local Government in identifying the best model for the management of Spontaneous Volunteers in the local government area.  Includes information on who manages liability and insurance based on the model selected. 

These models outline where the accountability and responsibilities are held for managing and coordinating
Spontaneous Volunteers. There are three models that Local Governments can adopt:


1. Local Government Led Model - Local Government will determine the need for Spontaneous Volunteers through the Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) and the Local Disaster Control Centre (LDCC) via the LDCC Spontaneous Volunteer Coordinator and manage Spontaneous Volunteers themselves.

2. Organisation Led Model - Local Government will determine the need for Spontaneous Volunteers through the LDMG and LDCC (specifically the LDCC Spontaneous Volunteer Coordinator) and outsource the management of Spontaneous Volunteers to one external organisation.

3. Consortium Led Model - Local Government will determine the need for Spontaneous Volunteers through the LDMG and LDCC (specifically the LDCC Spontaneous Volunteer Coordinator) and outsource the management of Spontaneous Volunteers to a number of organisations.

It is important to note that liability applies to whichever group takes on the responsibility and accountability for managing Spontaneous Volunteers.
