Reasons to become a volunteer from a passionate former swimmer.

ASA Volunteer Policy

The aim of this policy is to set out standards about how the ASA works with volunteers who are directly involved with the organisation at a national and regional level. It is also the aspiration of the policy to encourage good practice for the support and supervision of volunteers who work within the wider swimming community and the ASA’s affiliated clubs.

Renewed guide to volunteering and benefits published

Following a government commitment in response to the Commission on the Future of Volunteering's report ‘Manifesto for Change’ earlier in 2008, Jobcentre Plus, part of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), has published its renewed guidance on volunteering whilst on benefits.

It responds to concerns voiced by the third sector that individuals in receipt of benefits are not always aware of their right to volunteer and can be put off if they think volunteering will affect their benefits. The guidance offers clear advice on how volunteering relates to benefits such as Jobseeker's Allowance and Working Tax credits.
