JVN Launches Companion to Volunteering

Thursday 11th June 2015

JVN celebrated a landmark in its history with the publication last week of the Companion to Volunteering: Good Practice Guidelines for Volunteers and Volunteer Managers.

Launched during Volunteers' Week, the book is essential reading for volunteers who want to be aware of their rights and responsibilities in their roles, and for organisations that want to demonstrate good practice in volunteer management.

The Companion, with a forward written by Dr Justin Davis-Smith CBE, Executive Director of Volunteering and Development at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), was introduced by Leonie Lewis, JVN Director, and Lia Bogod, JVN Volunteer Development Manager.

Dr Rafael Zarum, Dean of the London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS), also contributed to the book and spoke at the launch about how volunteering is a crucial intrinsic part of Judaism. He noted how the JVN is not merely "an organisation that find volunteering opportunities for Jews", but is also an organisation tied up in its essence with the Jewish values that embody chesed - kindness, or love.
