Red Shield Neighbourhood Appeal - Volunteers

Event volunteering does not require an on-going, long term commitment. It is sometimes a one-off endeavour and requires short-term time availability (ie 2 to 4 hours), frequency of activity (twice per year) or a specific time of year, e.g. school holiday period.  Short term volunteering can be helpful for an event such as the Red Shield Appeal.

The following iformation is provided to support Corps in the delivery of their RSNA with a focus on volunteer engagement. There is additional information provided to support other areas of the RSNA such as teh handbook.

It is recommended that you read the Event and Short Term Volunteer page in addition to this inforation to gain on overview of the stages and steps involved with event and short term volunteering activities.
