Volunteering and internships are different things and it is important to be clear about the distinctions. There have been occasions where the two terms have been used interchangeably and this is not helpful. It is possible that organisations may simultaneously offer volunteering opportunities, internships and possibly other work experience opportunities. It is very important that these are clearly delineated and that confusion around how people are being involved in your organisation is minimised. Organisations need to be aware of their legal requirements, but to also ensure that their volunteering opportunities remain flexible and do not exploit.
