Volunteers

ADEA relies on the support of volunteers (many of whom are ADEA Members) to assist us in achieving our goals.

Our volunteers include: Board Members; Branch Executives; Committee Members; Special Interest Group Conveners/ Reps; Working Group Members; External Representations; Reviewers; Office support volunteers etc.

Volunteers working from home

Changes in 2016 to the Workplace Health and Safety Act 2011 means that ADEA, along with all other organisations, now have to consider volunteers within the definitions of this Act, who undertake work for ADEA in their home. This means there are responsibilities for both ADEA and ADEA volunteers.
