Volunteer Management

Recruiting Volunteers

Compared to other national charities, having 18,000 volunteers is an extraordinary achievement, but within RDA we all know it’s not enough.

Among Groups finding and recruiting volunteers is a constant challenge.

Welcoming Volunteers

Making sure new volunteers feel welcome is important.  Volunteers who receive a warm welcome are more likely to stay and make a valuable contribution to RDA in the future.

Green Cards

The Green Card (Volunteer Basic Training Record Cards) has been updated, these are no longer required to be sent into National Office. Please keep them securely with your Group.

You can order Green Cards and Basic A4 Training Record Sheets from the Group Orders Website 

Supporting Volunteers

Supporting volunteers  is about ensuring everyone is  happy and motivated in their role.  Through regular communication volunteers will feel valued and have the opportunity to provide feedback and let you know how they are feeling.

Co-ordinating Volunteers

Chris Collin from Three Rings along with Debbie and Jane from Cotswold joined Faye Mckenning from RDA National Office to talk about how they use Three Rings for their Group and ways you could use it to support your Group and its volunteers.

Recognising Volunteers

Many volunteers put in a great deal of time and effort to make RDA possible and it’s important to say thank you. There are many ways to recognise and reward the achievement of volunteers, both within your Group and at a national level.
