We do state that our volunteers register no earlier than 16 years old due to rules and regulations within charity law.
We have three types of volunteers:
Trustees govern the charity, make decisions, ensure compliance with legal regulations and ensure the charity meets its objectives. They also have opportunity to promote the charity to upstanding members of MOD and associates military organisations. Here Trustee/Co-Founders Kat & Carl were invited to the VIP Dinner, Military Tattoo, Fort George.
Official Volunteers have specified roles, direct contact with beneficiaries, a wide knowledge base of Outpost and its governance and operations, they also lead at events and fundraisers. Linda our Official Volunteer along with Andy a Casual Volunteer, helped Veteran Rob in his hour of need in Portsmouth.
Casual Volunteers generally have less time to commit and help only at small or few events each year. They have the basic knowledge of Outpost and understand its aims and objectives and are overseen by Official Volunteers and/or Trustees.
