UAE’s FNC passes new draft law to regulate volunteering

New bill seeks to promote the culture of volunteering and regulate and develop voluntary work in the UAE

The Federal National Council (FNC) has passed a new draft law regulating voluntary work across the UAE to invigorate the culture of volunteering.

The new bill seeks to promote the culture of volunteering and regulate and develop voluntary work in line with the government's policies and agendas in line with the Year of Zayed initiative, state news agency WAM reported.

It calls for coordinating voluntary work across the country and establishing a database of volunteers to encourage them to register with the volunteer platform.

According to the draft law, volunteer organisations licensed to work in the UAE are obliged to provide volunteers with a healthy and safe environment, sufficient training and induction, insurance cover against injuries and clear description of assignments.

Last year, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, was one of the first people to sign up for the country's new volunteer platform.

Volunteers.ae seeks to create an integrated and sustainable system for volunteering, and to promote it as one of the most important pillars of social cohesion.

In October, Expo 2020 Dubai launched its search for more than 30,000 volunteers who will be the "face" of the largest global gathering ever to be staged in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
