This document provides a guide for charities and third sector organisations on developing microvolunteering actions. Microvolunteering is defined in various ways by various organisations but can be summarised as: small, quick, low commitment actions that benefit a given cause. Microvolunteering embraces other forms of volunteering such as mobile volunteering (exclusively via smartphones), virtual or online volunteering (exclusively via the internet) and traditional volunteering (mostly associated with offline volunteering and in this context, tasks that can be completed in a small amount of time). This guide concentrates on the microvolunteer action types that Help From Home promotes.
