Event Details

Join us at our Camden and Islington January 2020 Volunteering Fair when we are once again joining forces with our good friends @ Volunteer Centre Islington on Wednesday 29th January, 12-2pm at Islington Assembly Hall, Upper Street, N1 2UD.  

 

Did you know that volunteering is good for you? Studies show that volunteering can improve and maintain your mental and physical health, and well as helping with the effects of stress, anxiety and low self esteem. And the social contact of helping and working with others can have a profound effect on your overall psychological wellbeing. Good times. 

 

Want to volunteer? As always, there’s no need to book. Just pop in.

 

*** However, if you are a non-profit that wants to recruit volunteers in Camden or Islington at the fair, then book your free place here on Eventbrite. (Please note: you only need to make one booking per organisation. Thanks.)

 

>> One more thing to know: We are particularly looking to offer micro-volunteering opportunities at this fair. Do you have anything that attendees could drop in and do in less than two hours? If so, email us to let us know. Thanks!

 

We look forward to seeing you there. ;)

 

*** Important: To attend our fairs, you will need to register your volunteering opportunities on our online matching tool, Volunteer Connect. This is quick and easy to do. And extends your volunteer recruitment reach. :) There are separate databases for Camden and Islington, so if you recruit volunteers in both boroughs, you will need to register your roles in both boroughs.

FAQs 

 

What can/can't I bring to the event? Bring any publicity materials you may have that relates to your organisation (postcards, leaflets etc). Remember you are selling your volunteering opportunities, so the more information the better! 

 

If space allows, you will have a shared table with another organisation. If the venue is smaller, then there will be one table for publicity materials and you will move around the room chatting to volunteers more informally. This will vary from venue to venue and we will let you know the room layout when you arrive.

 

You can also bring banners and posters and anything else you want to make your organisation more visible. You may also want to bring your diary or sign-up sheet to schedule organisational visits or visits for your potential recruits.   

 

Can I update my registration information? Yes! Feel free to log in make amendments at any time.  

 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No need! We will have your organisations' name on the registration list.  

 

What is the refund policy? We will charge organisations £50 if you do not attend the fair AND you have not given at least three working days' notice that you will cancel your booking. For this event that means midday on Friday 24th January.

 

Why do I need to give three working days' notice if I cannot attend? We aim to give the best experience possible to people who take the time to attend our fairs. The more organisations that attend the fair, the more likely it is that volunteers will find their perfect volunteering role. We always have a waiting list of more than ten organisations. If we know in good time that a place has become available, there is a better chance of another organisation being able to attend on the day. This would not be possible if we allowed for late cancellations. 

 

What happens if I am ill and cannot attend? We recommend having a back up attendee just in case you are unable to attend at the last minute.  

 

What happens if we do not pay our non-attendance fee? Unfortunately you will not be able to attend any of our events (training, forums. volunteering fairs), until the fee is paid. 

 

Any questions? Just ask. :)

Organiser

Volunteer Centre Camden

We give information & support and host events for volunteers and volunteer managers in Camden. This includes employer-supported volunteering via Team UP which connects businesses with local non-profits that could use help doing something. 

So, in a nutshell, we believe Camden is a better place through volunteering, and our job is to make that happen. We are always looking for better ways to do what we do. Any ideas? Just let us know.
