How to have a 'win -win relationship'

Valuing Volunteers

Two-Way Relationship

With this in mind, volunteering is considered to be a 'two-way' relationship. This approach has a fundamental effect on how the organisation approaches the involvement of the volunteer. By acknowledging this 'two-way' relationship with volunteers, the volunteer's reasons for volunteering become a matter of best balance between the needs of the organisation and the motivations of the volunteers; the best balance being that which maximises the benefits of volunteering for both parties.
