Volunteer Co-ordinators Forum (Adur & Worthing) 18 June 2019
Our volunteer coordinators’ forum brings together people who manage volunteers. It’s a great way to stay up to date with and learn about best practice around volunteer management, to benefit from peer support, and to network with other volunteer coordinators.
Date: 18 June 2019
Time: 10:00 – 13:00
Venue: Worthing Town Hall, Gordon Room
‘How to encourage people to volunteer, who might not usually consider it’.
“It is not that charities have been biased. It is just that when they needed more volunteers: they asked Marjorie and Gladys to get some of their friends along, and they were a lot like Marjorie and Gladys!” says a report by the government’s Office of Civil Society.
Our topic will include:
• Why all types of people should consider volunteering for you
• Hidden barriers to volunteering, what the research shows
• What your organisation can do to encourage broader applicants
Our forum is open to anyone who has direct responsibility for managing or coordinating volunteers, 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 you and our funders. Our volunteer coordinators’ forum framework sets out in more detail the purpose of the forum
