Volunteering teams can register with the department even if they are not part of an organisation.

A new policy launched in Abu Dhabi will let residents volunteer without the need to be affiliated to an organisation or entity.

The Abu Dhabi Media Office took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce the policy launched by the emirate's Department of Community Development "to facilitate and organise volunteer work".

"The new framework will create an efficient and effective volunteering environment. This comes as part of an effort to kick-start Abu Dhabi's rate of volunteerism by raising awareness and encouraging participation across all segments of society, so that anyone can volunteer under robust professional standards in a secure environment," the media office said.

Volunteering teams can register with the department even if they are not part of an organisation.

Three types of permits will be issued:
> For individuals
> For teams of five individuals or more.
> For established organisations from the public, private, or third sector (not-for-profit and non-government), that want to include volunteers in their operations or programmes.
"The policy outlines a set of rights and duties for volunteers, volunteer teams, volunteer team leaders, and entities that use volunteers, to ensure all volunteers are treated equally, fairly, and are able to volunteer in a safe environment," the media office added.
