are expected to respect the local community and
ensure that they do not behave in a manner which might cause offense
and/or damage to the excellent relationship that La Giraudière enjoys
with the local community, in particular the inhabitants of Brossac.
• La Giraudière attracts volunteers of many different ages and
nationalities. Volunteers are expected to treat their fellow volunteers
with respect, consideration and be sensitive to differences in values
and lifestyle that may be linked to age and cultural background.
• Volunteers are expected to respect the property of La Giraudière and
treat it with all reasonable care to ensure that they do not damage it.
Volunteers are expected to take all reasonable steps to avoid causing
harm to their fellow volunteers. This is particularly important when
volunteers are working in close proximity with one another. Careless or
reckless behavior whilst volunteering on the project and/or failure to
pay attention to instructions given will be treated as a particularly
serious breach of this Code, due to the potential danger such behavior
poses to other volunteers.
• While performing the tasks assigned to them on the project, volunteers
are obliged to follow the instructions of the project director (or any
person nominated by him from time to time) of La Giraudière and to
carry out these tasks to the best of their ability. Where unsure
of any project instruction a volunteer will not proceed without further
clarification. All necessary protective clothing, footwear,
equipment, materials etc shall be provided where necessary and must be used.
• By submitting my application and subsequently reserving my place to
volunteer for La Giraudière I acknowledge that I fully understand and
shall abide by the details set out in this Volunteers Code of Conduct.
