Talking with the Charity

Picking the organisation that suits you best can be stressful, especially if it's your first time volunteering. We've collated some questions that you can ask the charity when you first speak to them. These can help you select what charity to volunteer with. In addition, we've also listed some information you should collect from the organisation as soon as you arrive on the ground.
