FREE Zoom training
26th January 2021, 10am – 12pm
A well thought out volunteering programme has always been necessary for effective
volunteer recruitment and management. But it may be difficult to know where to start if
you are new to volunteer management or want to refresh your approach – and the current
coronavirus pandemic brings an additional set of challenges.
This session will address the following areas, offering practical advice and guidance about best practice against the
backdrop of COVID-19:
- Steps to take before recruiting volunteers
- COVID-19: implications for volunteering
- What a good recruitment process looks like
- Designing compelling volunteer opportunities
- Onboarding: what works
- Safeguarding volunteers and service users
- Tips for volunteer well-being
- Key skills for successful volunteer management.
With the opportunity to ask questions during the session, reflect on the situation in your
own organisation and chat with peers, you will come away with increased confidence t
enhance your volunteering programme, and additional training resources to help both you
and your volunteers.
Who should attend?
Anyone responsible for recruiting and managing volunteers (paid/unpaid), particularly those
