Volunteering Placements at Chatsworth will typically last for six weeks. This is to ensure that:
- Placements are supported, focused and purposeful
- There are equal opportunities for all those wishing to apply for volunteering placements at Chatsworth
- The notion of volunteering at Chatsworth is sustainable and well managed
Placements will typically be half a day or more per week, as agreed by the volunteer and the volunteering coordinator at the outset of the placement.
Volunteers will be asked to reflect on their learning on a regular basis using a weekly log of their experiences. This log will be shared and discussed with the Volunteers Coordinator. Where appropriate, additional research tasks may be set by the Volunteers Coordinator, to be carried out at an agreed time.
