4  What is it about that situation that makes you feel like that?  What are the environments you create like to someone who’s not there every day?

5  You know what’s normal - clarity  You know what’s expected - clarity  You know the unwritten rules / etiquette - clarity  You know how people are likely to react - clarity  You feel that you are accepted - caring  You feel that you’re in the loop – caring  You feel like you have something to offer - caring

6  Organisational ◦ People need to know why they’re coming in.  Role ◦ People need to know what their part in the whole is  Task ◦ People need to know what level of authority they have.

7  Write down at least one aim and one value of your organisation  Put your piece of paper down. Now go and explain them to someone you don’t know.  Feedback  Practical ways of communicating these? ◦ Modelled ◦ Verbal ◦ Visual  Ongoing reinforcement is key

8  Role descriptions – not just a piece of paper  Why is what I am doing important?  Give people stories showing how they’ve helped.

13  What works for you?  Where next for ideas? ◦ Organisational policy ◦ Each other ◦ Experienced volunteers ◦ Exit interviews

14  When are we confident?  Clarity – people know what they’re doing  Caring – people can be themselves  Share tools and tips
