A role description is important for volunteers because it allows them to know exactly what they are taking on, what is expected of them and how they will be supported. Having role descriptions shows Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated is organised and committed to looking after its volunteers. A role description is also important when it comes to the Volunteer Protection Act (2001), which protects both the Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated and its volunteers.
Seacliff Community Recreation Association Incorporated commits to good record keeping e.g. policies, procedures.
