HVOS has overseen the development of resources which can be used in the sector, most recently the HVOS Volunteer Organisers Toolkit (supported by Museums Galleries Scotland).
The HVOS Toolkit takes an action-planning approach to involving volunteers, and provides a step‐by‐step guide to working with volunteers along with sample documentation. The Toolkit has been particularly well received by small museums working towards Museums Accreditation, and volunteer-involving organisations taking their first steps toward Volunteer Friendly and Investing in Volunteers awards.
If you have questions about the toolkit or any of the templates available in it, or any suggestions for the next edition, please email us.
