I’m just in the process of setting up all our volunteer procedures and paperwork. We are currently debating how best to approach travel expenses for volunteers. I’m interested to know if other schemes budgeted for volunteer travel in their projects and if so, what your policy is. Do you always pay for every trip? Do you pay travel expenses for volunteer training? What rate do you pay? Do you set a limit on how many miles you will pay per journey? Do you find volunteers always claim, or are reluctant to claim? If you don’t pay travel expenses, does this cause any problems?
If anyone can share any thoughts on this it would be very useful.
