  • Verify volunteers’ hours and obtain their feedback.
  • Manage and report on all the relevant data associated with the above securely.

Please note

All opportunities created on opportunities.volunteerglasgow.org require to be checked and authorised by a member of our Volunteering Team prior to publication. We will endeavour to ensure this happens within 24 hours. We will not normally advertise your opportunities if any of the following applies:

  • The opportunity cannot be undertaken in the Glasgow local authority area and/or does not benefit Glasgow LAA residents: you can find details of our sister Volunteer Centre/Third Sector Interface services across Scotland on the Voluntary Action Scotland web site
  • The opportunity is provided by a profit-making, private sector company.
  • The opportunity and/or provider does not appear to be compliant with health & safety, charity, protection of vulnerable groups and/or any other relevant legislation.
  • The opportunity and/or provider does not appear to have appropriate insurance cover in place.
  • The opportunity is not – in our view – an appropriate volunteering role.
  • The advert and/or opportunity is poorly designed and is unlikely to offer a quality experience.
