These toolkits have been produced to support small and medium-sized arts groups who struggle to improve the support they offer volunteers. The toolkits 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 toolkits has been written by Voluntary Arts and Volunteering England (England) and Voluntary Arts Scotland and Volunteer Scotland (Scotland). 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.
