Volunteers and security
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.
