Develop your volunteering strategy, 31 March 2020

A volunteering strategy helps you to successfully develop your volunteering programme. It helps identify the aims of your programme and be clear about what steps you need to take to make sure you achieve the desired outcomes for your activities and volunteers.

This workshop looks at the importance of taking a strategic approach to developing your volunteering programme and how this adds value and positively impacts your activities.

You will have the opportunity consider how to start planning your strategy; what it us useful to include, for example, reasons for involving volunteers; roles and responsibilities, who should be involved in development, resourcing, equalities, diversity and inclusion, safeguarding and review.

By the end of the day, you will:

  • understand the purpose and benefit of having a volunteering strategy and how it differs from a volunteering policy
  • be equipped with the knowledge you need to develop a volunteering strategy
  • be better placed to integrate volunteering into your organisation
  • be able to demonstrate the outcomes of your volunteering programme

Who is the course for?

This one-day workshop is primarily for volunteer coordinators who have responsibility for the management and development of a volunteer programme but it is also open to anyone who wants to understand more about the importance of strategic planning around volunteering and how this adds to your organisation activities.
