Henna Asian Women’s Group believes that Volunteering and volunteers are a valuable and integral part of society and volunteers have a right and support to recognition like any workers. Everyone has the right to volunteer without experiencing any form of discrimination or prejudice.
Henna believes training, supervision and development opportunities must be provided so that volunteers enhance their knowledge and skills and can give and get the best they can from their role as volunteer.
Volunteers and Recruitment
All prospective volunteers will be asked to come and talk to our staff to
discuss the options for voluntary work. A standard interview and audit form will be used to find out the applicant’s goals and skills.
Two references will be required by all applicants.
A decision will be made by Henna following the return of both references. Henna has the right to decline any volunteer’s application and the volunteer has the right to know why they were not accepted.
If a volunteer is accepted, they are required to sign a volunteer agreement which states the terms and conditions of being a volunteer.
We require 6 months minimum time for volunteering with us.
Volunteers are entitled to reimbursement of local travel expenses incurred during their voluntary work and will be provided with lunch during full day volunteering.
The first point of contact for any grievances/complaints by volunteers is Henna’s Manager who will follow up any complaint immediately.
Monitoring and Evaluation
Volunteers are encouraged to be actively involved in the centre’s policies and procedures and will be asked their opinions by means of a questionnaire from time to time. When volunteers decide to end their voluntary work, we encourage them to have an informal meeting with Henna staff to give any feedback, either positive or negative, regarding their voluntary work.
