Welcome to the WCVA volunteering pages!

Volunteers are the lifeblood of voluntary and community organisations in Wales.  If you work with volunteers, then we are here to support you.

The latest news stories include updates on new resources and WCVA activities on volunteering, as well as a selection volunteering stories from organisations across Wales and beyond.

Our series of over 20 information sheets cover a range of topics including volunteer expenses, safety and risk assessment, how to work with young people, individuals with mental health problems and volunteers who are hard to place.  Our latest information sheets are on volunteers and insurance and (coming shortly) on Involving volunteers from overseas.

There is also a suite of model policies and templates that you can download and adapt for your own use. 

You will find articles on aspects of volunteer management on our 'Good practice' pages and many of the resources also support good practice in volunteer management.

There are pages for specifc projects and programmes, past and present, including Investing in Volunteers, GwirVol the Explore Internships programme and the Big Wales Volunteering project.

If you are interested in volunteering policy, check out the networks and forums where this is discussed, such as the Wales Volunteering Policy Network and see our 'Hot topics' articles on volunteering policy issues.
