Do not expect anything from the organisation except demands on what we do, how, why and when. It’s worth remembering without us there are no jobs and extra jobs we never had before, for these people making the rules up, it’s a pity they don’t realise this.
Our OC was hoping that these changes were going to bring a more friendly approach, given that Officers were no longer bound by military rules combined with the valuing volunteer project, but so far hasn’t happened.
Why as an organisation we need T&C for people volunteering beyond DBS and safeguarding training, is fast becoming more of a mystery.
The hold is that adults come into this organisation to work with and for the kids that join and our leaders know this and is wonder staff recruitment remains a major problem, and has become more and more reliant on preying on 19 year olds to stay, with stories of greatness that will be bestowed upon them and it doesn’t take long for that gloss to wear off and reality exposed.
