Too often we are faced with the realities of violence in our society through our work, what we read, hear and view through the media. Violence and Aggression in society is a fact of life and requires recognition as a factor that may influence, or alter our personal lives and work environment.  Violence and Aggression in the work place has legal implications for any employer and requires management as we manage other aspects of our work.

The National Standards for Volunteer Involvement are Australia's best practice road map for volunteering. This workshop provides an introduction to the National Standards, how they can assist with the management of volunteer programs and the initial steps for introducing the Standards into an organisation. Participants will be guided through an overview of using the Standards self-audit tools.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
