Managing Concerns about a Volunteer
Volunteers give their time and effort freely, and taking action to address poor performance or behaviour is one of the hardest roles those supporting volunteers face. We want volunteering to be a positive and rewarding experience, however, unfortunately it is sometimes necessary to take action to avoid performance or behaviour that is inappropriate for people affected by MND or the Association.
The Association expects a high standard of conduct and integrity from its volunteers. Conduct which calls the Association into disrepute or impairs its efficient running is taken seriously.
The principle of this policy is that concerns about volunteer behaviour and competence be addressed supportively and sensitively, but swiftly, fairly and objectively.
