To be able to employ volunteers as an organisation, you must be a de facto association, private or public legal entity not for profit purposes (CVBA-VSO, local division of a dome, a public utility foundation, public authorities, iCVBA-VSOs). Organisations with profit motive, self-employed and individuals can never engage volunteers.
Give a Day is to find volunteer work for themselves and society: making friends, making use of your experience, making a difference, learning, having fun, experimenting, gaining benefits, empathizing, strengthening the neighborhood, using your skills, gaining experience, meeting looking behind the scenes, helping others, finding your place ...
That is why we are more than just a platform, we want to be a community, of people and organisations.
Give a Day wants to give inspiration for useful free time.
The fun experience and personal growth is central. It is therefore interesting to respond to these motivations of volunteers as an organisation.
As an organisation you are obliged to at least inform the volunteer about the following things (This can be done in a volunteer contract, an oral or written communication.)
Also pay attention if the volunteer gets a replacement income. Be sure to ask for it, because if the volunteer gets a replacement income, it probably has a duty to report with respect to the payment institution. The volunteer must then before the start of the volunteer at the payout institution hear what he/she must do in order to stay in order.
Organisations are obliged to take out civil liability insurance for every volunteer who participates in a voluntary activity. As an organisation, you must inform the volunteer at the start of the activity. It may be that your type of association is not obliged to take out insurance, then the volunteer falls back on his own family insurance. Be sure to check with your insurance company, how this is done with your organisation. Are volunteers already included in the insurance as standard? Is there a maximum number? ...
An organisation is not obliged to pay a fee. It is assumed that if one does something voluntarily, one gets feeling and appreciation through other ways than the material. Of course it is not the intention that the volunteer tears his/her pants on, so you as an organisation can give a compensation for the expenses.
You can get compensation in two ways:
* These amounts apply from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021.
Give a Day focuses on matching organisations and volunteers in a constructive way and by listening to the wishes of both. Give a Day starts from the volunteer's point of view in order to be able to appeal to the volunteer on motivation, which gives an ideal match more opportunities.
