Volunteering for Staffordshire County Council

Volunteers play a vital role in empowering our communities, adding real value to the work of the council and helping to improve our offer for residents across the county. We want to make sure people who volunteer for the council have a positive and consistent experience. With this in mind, Cabinet will be asked to consider and approve a new set of ‘volunteering principles’. These principles will be applied across the organisation to support our volunteers and help reinforce their importance to us and our communities. Alongside the new principles, a set of practical guidance and support documents have also been produced for staff responsible for managing and supporting our volunteers.
