New eLearning course: Health and Safety for group volunteers

We’ll soon be making our new ‘Health and Safety for group volunteers’ training available on our eLearning platform.

We’ve designed this short, interactive course to help raise awareness of the forms needed for events and activities, how to use the Portal for recording them and where to get support if you need it. It will only take 15-20 minutes to complete the course.

Who needs to do this training?

For any volunteers starting in Group Coordinator or Health and Safety Volunteer roles (either as a brand new volunteer or through a change of role) from May 2023 this will be ‘must do’ training and form part of the induction.

If you’re an existing Group Coordinator or Health and Safety Volunteer, we’ll send you an email with a link to the training (don’t forget to check your junk folders), but completing it will be optional.

If you help with arranging events and activities and think you’d benefit from this training, just let us know at [email protected].

We’ll still have all the relevant Health and Safety documents and videos available on the volunteer website for you to access.

Thank you!

Groups did an amazing job delivering services to our community throughout 2022, delivering more than 350 services and social events. We’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for ensuring that these are run safely. If you need a reminder of the processes you need to use, you can find our Health and Safety information here.
