Whether you involve 1 or 1,000 volunteers, your organisation needs to ensure it manages volunteers effectively

and by that, we mean everything from how an individual volunteer fits in and works along side paid staff (if you have them) to creating and maintaining extended volunteer programmes. Central to any successful volunteering programme, big or small, is effective volunteer management.
