Development is an important part of your good volunteer management. It can feature in the all the previous stages on the guide. If you let someone know what they can expect to get from volunteering with you, it can:

  • increase interest in your volunteering opportunity
  • Encourage a person to stay if they continue to get something out of their volunteering.

It is also important for your beneficiaries that volunteers are up-to-date with the things they need to know and the skills they meet their objective.

Some development needs will be led by the needs of your group as there are social, financial and political changes to navigate, but you need to incorporate a person-centred approach to this depending on need and required outcome of each volunteer.
