Volunteering in emergencies: Practical guidelines for Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies managing volunteers in emergency situations

This document can also be found on the Official website of International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) at https://www.ifrc.org/en/--/

The purpose of these guidelines is to pull together good practice from around the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement (Movement) into a framework to support National Societies in improving their work with volunteers in emergencies. These guidelines will be primarily useful for National Society focal points for volunteer coordination and disaster management. The guidelines provide insights into policy and operational issues that need to be negotiated within National Society management, and with volunteers.
