Volunteers do not carry out any activities that negatively influence the access of local residents or community members to employment opportunities

What does this mean?

  • This point is also very much related to B2 and deals with the possible negative impacts of volunteers on local residents or the community’s access to employment opportunities.
  • In this case employment opportunities could refer to market access, access to skills needed for employment, employment opportunities, etc.

What do I do?

  • As above in B10 the business needs to determine the possible negative impacts by consulting with the local community to determine if the volunteer program has any negative effects on the employment opportunities of local residents.
  • Once identified, the business needs to write an action plan to mitigate these impacts and document how this has been dealt with.
