Information for Local Support Groups

The DSA has a created a Local Groups and Volunteering Guide to help local support groups support their volunteers. The guide covers every stage of volunteering, from reaching out to new volunteers to volunteering health and safety guidance and volunteer support. You can also access template sheets which you can print out and use.
