Volunteer vetting

Your event has a duty of care to its participants, particularly when it involves young and vulnerable people.

  • Consider the need for Police vetting of volunteers.
  • If police vetting is required, all volunteers must fill out a consent form granting permission for Police vetting to take place.

Volunteers as security

  • If volunteers are being used in an information or marshalling capacity, they must have been trained and given the appropriate equipment and uniforms.
  • If a volunteer is not confident with customer service or conflict resolution, a crowd management role is not appropriate for them.
