Being a volunteer
We value all the time volunteers can provide; some of the roles require a regular commitment, while others are more flexible. Wherever possible we will try and tailor the time commitment around your availability. Some of the volunteer roles have a minimum time commitment and we will discuss this when talking through new opportunities
Volunteers will not be out of pocket while volunteering for us. We will refund reasonable travel expenses and costs incurred as part of the volunteer role.
All volunteers will receive an appropriate induction plus ongoing support and advice to enable them to undertake these important roles.
Volunteer policies and procedures
New volunteers will be sent a copy of all policies and procedures linked to volunteering.
Support and training
Our volunteers receive the support and training that they need to carry out their voluntary work safely and effectively. Some training we provide is ongoing and some is one-off depending on the role. Deaf Direct also holds group training sessions, which all volunteers are encouraged to attend.
All our volunteer roles are covered by our insurance. During the induction process we will talk to you about your safety whilst carrying out your role.
