Staff volunteering policy


Oxford Brookes University seeks to play a leading role in the socio-economic and cultural development of the communities that it serves. As part of its commitment to community engagement the University has a Staff Volunteering Policy. The policy is also intended to support, encourage and develop employees by facilitating their involvement in a wide range of local, national and international community organisations.

This document provides a summary of volunteering arrangements and responsibilities. More detailed information is contained in the University’s volunteering guidelines. Please also see the Staff Experience volunteering pages.

The leave provisions set out in this policy are additional to those included in the University policy on leave for voluntary public duties.
