Volunteering with Safer Merthyr Tydfil
Safer Merthyr Tydfil has been recruiting volunteers for over 12 years and offer volunteering roles which enhance delivery of services to our beneficiaries.
We recognise the right that people have to participate in the life of their communities through volunteering. It also acknowledges that volunteers contribute in many ways, that their contribution is unique and that volunteering can benefit service users, staff, local communities and the volunteers themselves. We value the contribution made by volunteers and are committed to involving volunteers in appropriate opportunities and in ways which are encouraging, supportive and which develop volunteering.
All volunteers will be made aware of and have access to all of Safer Merthyr Tydfil’s relevant policies, including those relating to volunteering, health & safety, safeguarding children and adults, data protection and equal opportunities.
The development of training and support for volunteers is a high priority for the organisation in order to equip them with the necessary information and skills to carry out their tasks. It will be the responsibility of the organisation to ensure that appropriate and ongoing training is provided. It is the responsibility of the volunteer to attend relevant training.
