It is important that all our volunteers claim their expenses. We are keen to ensure that you are not disadvantaged financially while volunteering for us, whatever your circumstances.
Claiming expenses is also a way for us to assess the full costs of volunteering, which we can use if we are approached by funders for a project.
Out-of-pocket expenses can include, but are not limited to:
• Stationery and postage
• Phone costs.
Your expenses will be paid by your local branch or group. For any expenses relating to attending other events such as conferences etc, please check with your branch/group first. Where there is no branch or group, your expenses can be claimed from national office via your regional care development adviser (RCDA) or volunteering development co-ordinator (VDC).
Please use the claim form. Receipts should be attached to the form and your claim authorised by the appropriate person, (branch treasurer, VDC or RCDA).
