Assists organisations responsible for the management of Spontaneous Volunteers with establishing an Operational Plan to clearly articulate how Spontaneous Volunteers will be utilised and managed when the need arises.
HOW TO USE THIS DOCUMENT
This document is designed to step you through how to develop your own Operational Plan with examples to get you started. When developing your Spontaneous Volunteer Operations Plan it should work in conjunction with:
- Your Local Government’s Managing Spontaneous Volunteer Sub-Plan.
- Your existing volunteer management policies, procedures and practices. Remember, organisations managing Spontaneous Volunteers should already have existing volunteer programs, policies and procedures in place for volunteer management.
These policies and procedures apply to Spontaneous Volunteers, with the development of the Managing Spontaneous Volunteer Operations Plan to clearly articulate how to operationalise Spontaneous Volunteers when the need arises.
