Legal Resources

The NSW Government has commissioned Justice Connect's Not-for-profit Law service to produce legal resources covering a range of common areas of concern for volunteer-engaging, not-for-profit organisations. The resources have been designed with volunteers and small, volunteer-run community organisations in mind, to:

  • help volunteer organisations understand the implications of the law for their volunteer management practices and policies
  • assist volunteer-engaging organisations assess legal risks of their volunteer programs
  • improve the ability of volunteer organisations to explain the law to their volunteers.

The first tranche are already available and include fact sheets and sample templates. They can be accessed here:

Word versions of the templates, that can be amended to suit your organisation, are available here:
