Volunteer co-ordinators forum

The volunteer coordinators forum is one of the networks we run. It’s for people who manage volunteers in organisations of any size in the local area.

By being involved in the forum you will benefit from:

  • quarterly meetings
  • peer support from other volunteer managers
  • networking and learning opportunities
  • involvement in an online discussion group

The forum will help you to feel supported in your role and connect you with other volunteer managers.

It’s open to anyone who has direct responsibility for managing or coordinating volunteers in the local area, regardless of the size of your organisation and whether your role is paid or unpaid.

Each forum meeting provides an opportunity to develop skills and share experiences in the management of volunteers. The structure, format and themes are chosen in consultation with members of the group and our funders.

Our  volunteer coordinators forum framework sets out in more detail the purpose of the network.
