Local residents and communities do not discriminate against volunteers on any grounds

What does this mean?

  • Just as in point B10 where businesses need to ensure that volunteers do not discriminate against local residents and the community, the same applies in terms of protection of volunteers.
  • In other words the business needs to ensure that local residents and the community are aware of the issue of discrimination and that they do not in turn discriminate against the volunteers for any reason.

What do I do?

  • The business should keep records of awareness raising done with the community on these grounds
  • The community also needs to be informed about the process that will be followed by the business if any issues of discrimination are reported by volunteers.
  • The same forms for recording any instances of discrimination can be used as in point B10, as well as those for recording outcomes etc.
