The Volunteer Code of Conduct and the Discplinary Procedure for Volunteers. 1. On Thursdays volunteers must make sure that they are ticked as present on the register 2. Volunteers must be reliable. If you have said that you will be there or do that, you must be there or do that (or arrange for someone to take your place) 3. Volunteers must not bring the name of the Club into disrepute 4. Volunteers must listen to and respect the members’ ideas and views 5. Volunteers must not repeat what a member tells them unless it needs to be passed on for the member’s benefit and the member has given consent 6. Volunteers must always make sure they are open in everything they do so no accusation of abuse can be made 7. Volunteers must always act in a sensible way with members 8. Volunteers must never take anything that does not belong to them 9. Volunteers must do as they are asked by any volunteer in charge of an activity 10. Volunteers must not be alone with any member (not just a member of the opposite sex) 11. Volunteers must avoid unnecessary physical contact with members 12. Volunteers must not form relationships with members, make any sexual advances or show any form of favouritism—this will be construed as taking advantage of a member’s vulnerability 13. Volunteers must not have members on their Facebook friends lists unless that member is related to them If you break these rules: 1. Any volunteer who offends against the Volunteer Code of Conduct, or whose behaviour has been complained about by a parent, carer or other member of the public, will be invited to meet the three Club officers informally to discuss the issues. If the volunteer who is the subject of the disciplinary procedure is an officer of the Club, the remaining officers will co-opt another committee member to attend this meeting. 2. If the volunteer does not wish to attend such a meeting, or if the Club officers believe that a disciplinary issue has arisen, the volunteer will be asked to make a formal appearance before the full committee. This appearance will be either at a special meeting of the committee or as an agenda item at a routine meeting. The committee may decide to REPRIMAND the volunteer or END HIS OR HER CONNECTION WITH CLUB 2000 3. If the volunteer believes the committee’s decision is unfair, he or she may ask to appear at a further meeting of the committee. The volunteer may bring a friend or professional adviser to support him or her at the meeting. The decision of the committee at or following this meeting will be final.
