The volunteer journey
This is defined by DutySheet as the path a volunteer takes in his or her life within the organisation. How can DutySheet help you on this journey?
Engaging with a brand or organisation that you feel passionately enough to volunteer for is not always a straightforward exercise. Time, research and deliberation will all play a part, but how this administrative process is managed now, will set a precedent for the future, as first impressions undeniably count.
DutySheet simplifies the data collection process and engages the volunteer from the first encounter. Personal details are collected with ease and little interrogation, offering a friendly, yet professional approach.
Constant two-way communication is fundamental to the success of a good working partnership. A volunteer is an incredible asset to the team and in order to fulfil both parties expectations, it's essential to maintain an open and regular dialogue between volunteer and organisation.
DutySheet has various communication tools that act in a similar way to Social Media; offering regular news and announcements, important information and upcoming events. As well as finding this method of communication familiar, we understand the importance of both steering your path within an organisation and being part of a community of likeminded peers.
DutySheet can help the relationship between volunteer and its organisation by encouraging and monitoring feedback.
Rating events or tasks that one participates in can offer good insight for both volunteer and organisation. In order to retain volunteers, we look for feedback that will measure how motivated or valued a volunteer feels. Better understanding of this may prevent a volunteer from leaving.
DutySheet is constantly evolving and innovating with the addition of each new user and their invaluable feedback.
DutySheet understands that each organisation has different needs with regards to their volunteers.
With our modular design, users are able to choose the functionalities that are relevant to them.

Your question answered
When was DutySheet acquired by The Access Group?
The Access Group officially made the announcement of acquiring DutySheet on 24th June 2022. This has allowed the software company to trade as Assemble and DutySheet to hundreds of charity and public sector organisations.
What is the mission of DutySheet?
DutySheet Mission Statement:
“DutySheet aims to harness the power and value of the one irreplaceable asset a volunteer is willing to give up; their time.”
Our goal is to help organisations get the most out of volunteers by providing an accessible, effective and secure volunteer management system.
By simplifying and streamlining resource management, our clients see results through better communication, increased productivity and intelligent reporting and feedback.
Innovation and development are at the forefront of our ethos. As a cloud based software provider, we are able to respond and adapt at a fast-pace, whilst supporting customers from within our internal helpdesk.
DutySheet’s development relies upon community driven feedback. Users steer us to improve the functionality and process behind this powerful solution. We work constantly to provide a system that meets your unique needs.
How secure is DutySheet?
DutySheet is ISO 27001:2013 certified. This is the international standard for Information Security Management. It provides a best practice framework for companies to comply with confidentiality, integrity and legal compliance, providing confidence that the appropriate controls and policies are in place to safeguard data. In achieving this standard, DutySheet has now further validated its internal processes, software as a service solutions and technical support as well as effectively demonstrated its capabilities to sufficiently protect customer data.
DutySheet's servers are hosted in ISO 27001 data centres that feature 24-hour manned security, biometric access control, video surveillance, and physical locks. The co-location facilities are powered by redundant power, each with UPS and backup generators. All systems, networked devices, and circuits are constantly monitored by both DutySheet and the data centre provider.
Does DutySheet have an API?
DutySheet features a powerful API (Application Program Interface) that allows your in-house software to talk to us and vice versa.
We understand that your organisation may already have ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or HR software in-house for full time staff but this does not suffice for volunteers. And this is where DutySheet’s expertise can help.
DutySheet provides a solution to manage volunteers that will not interfere with your existing systems or cause any additional administrative tasks. The API gives you full access to your data and, as with all our services, keeps information protected and secure.
How is DutySheet hosted?
DutySheet is a Software as a Service (SaaS) and is accessible by any Internet based device.
The main benefit of subscribing to this type of service is a higher adoption rate in users, since logging onto internet based platforms is a familiar process.
Not only does this reduce overheads from hosting, it negates upfront investment in IT Infrastructure, ongoing support and upgrade costs.
Your data is held securely in our UK based data centres and is accessible 24/7.
