This course asks you to reflect on the essential elements that volunteers and those supporting them consider to be key to ensuring a positive volunteer experience. The focus is on practical things: asking you to consider what may already be familiar issues and encouraging you to create the space to explore the relevance of these.

The course does not attempt to provide all the answers, instead it asks you to consider some key questions and helps to point you to some relevant sources of information that will enable you to explore these themes in more detail.

While you may be focused on improving your practice, it is also worth considering the wider context of volunteering where you are, as this will influence your volunteer involvement.

This section begins by outlining the landscape of volunteering in Scotland. It then goes on to highlight sources of support you might want to access.
