Volunteer Passport

The Norfolk Volunteer Passport provides volunteers with fully funded training to equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to take on a volunteering role. Signing up to the Norfolk Passport also means that volunteers can move easily between voluntary organisations and importantly, fill urgent, short-term roles as and when they come up.

The 8-hour training course is delivered by Norfolk Adult Learning as four x 2-hour online sessions or as two 4-hour in-person sessions. It covers the basic knowledge and skills that volunteers need to have: everything from health & safety to safeguarding adults and children.

Once volunteers have successfully completed the training, Voluntary Norfolk will register individuals on the Volunteer Passport system. If the Volunteer Passport holder is willing, they may be contacted by voluntary organisations or charities for one-off or urgent help. The passport helps to ensure volunteers can move easily and quickly between roles, without having to repeat basic training, helping VCSE organisations and ensuring help can be targeted to meet urgent needs in Norfolk.
