Introduction: In volunteering there are two things that need to be balanced. One is the interest of the organization; the other is the interest of the volunteer. They each have to offer something to the other for the partnership to work, so there is mutual benefit. The volunteer needs a sense of satisfaction and achievement and to feel that the contribution of their time and effort is valued. The organisation needs a volunteer that will be able to offer skills and ideas that will be of value to it.
