Guidance on Volunteering In Social Care Settings

This guidance for volunteering in social care settings has been jointly developed by WCVA, Social Care Wales and Care Inspectorate Wales.

The guidance provides information on the general principles of volunteering for staff who are or likely to manage volunteers within social care, whether they be from a local authority, an independent provider or a voluntary sector organisation contracted to provide care and support services in the following settings:

  • Care Homes
  • Supported Living provision for people with a learning disability
  • Domiciliary Care
  • Day Services
  • Other community support services

The one-page checklist included will help social care services and organisations use volunteers effectively and safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
