Legal responsibilities of community organisations
Volunteers at community organisations are often surprised to discover that their legal responsibilities are little different from those of businesses run for profit. For example, a community organisation that fails to comply with health and safety regulations risks harming people in just the same way as a business does.
Despite the complexity of all the regulations, focusing on key areas will help to ensure that you stay on the right side of the law. And if there are particular issues that you need help with, advice and support are easy to find and often free of charge.
