This toolkit was produced to support small and medium-sized arts groups who struggle to improve the support they offer volunteers. The toolkit includes:

  • ideas, suggestions and recommendations
  • a range of checklists for those new to working with volunteers
  • a range of case studies to celebrate what is already happening across the sector
  • links to further information

The toolkit was produced by Creative Lives (formerly Voluntary Arts) and Volunteering England (England). Drawing on these organisations’ experience and knowledge of arts/cultural volunteering, the toolkit uses a wide range of best-practice quality assurance processes and procedures, including those that underpin Investors in Volunteers.
