Volunteer Support & Handbook

All our volunteers are invited to an 'Volunteer Induction' session which provides more detail about Oblong and the way we work, Health and Safety and details of the opportunities available.

 

As a volunteer you will have a supervisor who is responsible for providing support on a regular basis throughout your time at Oblong. Volunteers should have all the information they need to be successful in their role. We will therefore provide regular support and guidance through feedback sessions with your supervisor.

 

Feedback

We value your feedback and will use it to contribute directly to Oblong's volunteer programme and, where appropriate, service provision. We hope that as a volunteer you will provide and receive support from other volunteers. 

 

Volunteer Development

As a part of our support programme for volunteers, we provide access to training which will be useful and effective to our volunteers and the work they undertake for us. This may be on a one-to-one basis, through another organisations that have come to give in-house training at Oblong, or at an external location.

 

All volunteers at Oblong have an induction. The aim of the induction is to explain:

  • Your role in detail.
  • How Oblong does what it does.
  • How Oblong is organised.
  • The policies and procedures which may affect your work as a volunteer.
  • How to use the equipment you will be using.
  • What you can expect from us.
  • Travel and other negotiable expenses.

 

The volunteer co-ordinators are:

  • Milly Rohman
  • Cam Telford 

On a day-to-day basis a member of staff is allocated the role of centre support; if you need assistance please do not hesitate to ask.
