For many years organisations belonging to The Alliance of European Voluntary Organisations and CCIVS have exchanged volunteers and completed thousands of hours of voluntary work within each of their communities. During that time there has been a great deal of care, organisation and learning derived from each voluntary project. The standards have been good and the safety of the volunteers has been paramount. But there is always room for improvement. As both networks continue to grow in numbers and experience they have reached a stage where a more formal approach to Health and Safety is necessary.
