These roles can have various levels of responsibility that will be outlined within the Volunteer Role Description. However there are skills, qualities and requirements that we expect from any person volunteering within our service.

  • Confidentiality Policy**– as a volunteer you are expected to treat any experience you have with at Bassetlaw Mind with the up most respect. The only time you should ever pass on information is when you fell that a person may be at risk, or putting others at risk. This is outlined in Bassetlaw Minds Confidentiality Policy**
  • Punctuality– We expect all Volunteers to treat their role and the organisation with respect. If a Volunteer is going to be late one day or cannot make it at all, we expect them to contact the office and let a member of staff know.Volunteer Management Policy*
  • Professional Boundaries**– All Volunteers must have read, understand and abide by our Professional Boundaries Policy** as Volunteers will be working with vulnerable adults and in a centre with members of staff and other Volunteers it is essential that ALL Volunteers are familiar with this. This also relates to Bassetlaw Mind’s Safeguarding Policy*
  • Social Media Policy**- It is mandatory that all Volunteers and Staff of Bassetlaw Mind are fully aware of our Social Media Policy** and abide by it. In a world where Social Media is ever increasing, it is essential that the reputation for Bassetlaw Mind and the services we work so hard to deliver are not brought into disrepute.
