Who is a volunteer ?
A volunteer is an person carrying out work on behalf of the committee who is not being paid for their services. The committee may cover expenses.
This can include people who help to maintain the hall e.g. cleaning/gardening or help at an event e.g. man a stall or direct cars.
Provided the person is carrying out the activity on behalf of the committee and does not :
· have their own trading name
· have a website/Facebook page set up to promote the trading activity
· have a stall or perform at 10 or more events a year
we would class them as a volunteer.
All activities involving volunteers should be risk assessed an any industry or HSE guidance followed.
