The Harrow Heritage Trust consists entirely of volunteers. We actively
recruit volunteers by various means including:
● Listing at the
Harrow Volunteer Centre
● Mention of volunteering in the leaflets about our
● Our websites
The Trust recognises the immense benefits that volunteers contribute
and will give them every opportunity to exercise their skills.
Volunteers are encouraged and enabled to gain new skills such as the
use of horticultural machinery. These skills are applied on our sites
but are also useful to the volunteers in their future careers.
All volunteers are given the opportunity to be involved fully in the
operations of the Trust and are encouraged to offer feedback, to
discuss future developments and to give their views.
Volunteers at Nature Reserves are protected from undue risk by
comprehensive risk assessment, which are freely available on the Harrow
Nature Conservation Forum web site, and by safety talks describing the
sections of risk assessments relevant to the day's activities. They are
insured while on Trust business for personal and third party injury or
loss. Volunteers should report all accidents at Trust events to the
person in charge of the activity, usually a volunteer warden or deputy
Volunteers' positions are unpaid, but travel expenses and other
relevant costs will be reimbursed against receipts.
The Trust undertakes that personal details will be kept confidential.
This policy was approved at a meeting of the Forum on 11th May 2016.
