Sandwell Compact Volunteering Code of Practice

Sandwell Compact Volunteering Code of Practice

The Volunteering Code of Practice forms part of the Sandwell Compact which sets out the agreed framework for the relationship between the voluntary and community sector in Sandwell and their statutory partners.

Whilst the Compact is not a legally binding document it is a statement of intent and aspiration.This code of practice sets out undertakings by third sector and public organisations in Sandwell on good practice for volunteering.

The undertakings aim to promote volunteering, value and celebrate the contribution of volunteers, enable and support more people to volunteer, encourage better practice in the management of volunteers and tackle the barriers to volunteering.
