Rights and Responsibilities

Any individual who wishes to volunteer should be aware of their rights & responsibilities as a volunteer. FNQ Volunteers Inc. advises all clients of their rights and responsibilities.

Volunteers are a vital resource in any community organisation. Volunteering is about freedom of choice to work without monetary reward. However, volunteers can expect other rewards such as recognition for the work they do.

The volunteer contracts to perform a specific job with certain responsibilities and in return is entitled to certain rights.

Both the volunteer and the organisation have obligations to each other. Volunteer Rights and Volunteer Checklist.
