Principle 2

Develop mechanisms for support

What support is available for management committee members?  Review how you provide support or mentoring to individual members and particularly to new members.  Will this be provided by the Chair or specific members?  How frequently?  What form will this take?  This can help to highlight training or development needs on an individual basis and ensure they are able to carry out their role effectively.

Look at good practice guidance on managing volunteers for advice on providing support and supervision.

Volunteer Now provide publications on volunteer management, volunteer involvement and more.
