What agreements do you make when someone comes to help you?

The tips below are for anyone who asks for voluntary help or volunteers. You can read tips for volunteers here.

????‍????‍????6 tips to discuss during the meeting

The most important thing in an introductory meeting is, of course, getting to know each other. Does it click between you?

You can then discuss this with each other:

  1. What do you need and what do you expect in it? For example, what exactly does a task entail and what experience/knowledge/skills are required for this?
  2. How often would you like the other person to commit themselves? For how many hours? And for how long? It is often nice to have a 'trial period', after which you can both decide to continue for another period.
  3. How much flexibility is there? For example, are there fixed times or days?
  4. What do you do if things go wrong? For example, are you both insured with liability insurance?
  5. Which expenses are reimbursed (hourly allowance, travel expenses, etc.)?
  6. How do you keep in touch? Mail/app or something else? And how often?

And last but not least:

Lots of fun!
