WELCOME TO YOUR EXTRANET

Thank you very much for choosing to do a placement with Budget Volunteers!

Before you start your Project you need to:
  • Select your destination country from the list on the left
  • Download and print some very necessary documentation
  • Complete a few forms and submit them to us***
  • Read all the information we have provided in this Extranet about your project and what's required of you
  • Please visit the USEFUL LINKS page, it has lots of useful and necessary information to help you plan your trip.

  • Keep coming back here very regularly (i.e. once a week) to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information on your particular Project

*** RECEIPT OF YOUR PROJECT CONFIRMATION:
We need to submit your information to your chosen Project in order to get confirmation of your acceptance by the Project. We cannot do this until we receive the following documents back from you:

  • Questionnaire (including Medical Questionnaire)

  • Agreement & Release form

  • Your CV or Résumé (only for those projects that require them)

  • Covering Letter / Motivation Letter (only for those projects that require them)

  • Written Reference (only for those projects that require them)

  • Any sample work (if applicable, and only for those projects that require them)

Therefore please ensure that you complete the requisite forms and send the above documents to your Project Co-ordinator (preferably by email) as soon as possible. Please also note that once we have received the above documents, it may take anything up to four weeks or longer to obtain confirmation from your Project. This depends on things like school holidays or company holiday breaks. Please be patient during this period. We will notify you as soon as your project has been confirmed.

Please do not book any flights without checking with your Project Coordinator first, as we need to ensure that:
(A)  your placement has been confirmed before doing so
(B) you arrive at the right place at the right time.
We cannot be held responsible for any flights that are booked without checking with us first and / or that do not meet our suggested criteria for airport collections.

FLIGHT BOOKING SERVICE: Our Travel partner will automatically provide you with a flight option which we believe will be amongst the best value on the market. You'll be contacted with this quote, which you can accept or turn down. You are free to make your own flight arrangements if you choose to. Our flight options service is there to help you, but is not a requirement.

BVOL’s PARTNERS abroad

Budget Volunteering Overseas | Conservation | Care for Animals | Care for Children  

Budget Volunteering has partnered with Travellers Worldwide in order to provide volunteers to projects who are in need of greater volunteer numbers to benefit their recipients. Travellers Worldwide is a highly reputable voluntary organisation with over 20 years’ experience of running projects overseas. Together, we will look after you from the the start of arranging your program until you have completed your program. On arrival in the country, you’ll be met by a Travellers Worldwide representative and settled into your project. .

SAFETY IN YOUR DESTINATION COUNTRY:
In association with the ‘Know Before You Go’ Campaign, we are working with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) to do all that we can to help travellers stay safe overseas. Before you go overseas, check out the FCO website at www.fco.gov.uk/travel. It is packed with essential travel advice and tips, and up-to-date country information.

You must regularly, at least once a week, consult the FCO pages on safety issues within your destination country. This is to ensure that you are aware of any dangers or risks, so that you can take the necessary steps to be as safe as possible. Please visit www.fco.gov.uk and select the travel information for the destination country you are visiting. You should sign up with the website to have updates to your destination country profile delivered to your e-mail inbox. If you are from outside the UK and not comfortable with following advice from the UK FCO, please also check your own country’s Foreign Office Advice.
