  • Background or history
  • Meeting times and venues - term only or during the holidays too?
  • Numbers of young people and age range
  • Programme information
  • Management committee information
  • Current aims and objectives - perhaps an annual report or plan if you have one.

Putting in a few key policies is also a good idea:

Information about volunteer opportunities can show your commitment and appreciation of volunteers:

  • Training programme/opportunities
  • Induction programme
  • Supervision and support arrangements
