Event Details

Join 22 local organisations that are looking to recruit volunteers for volunteering roles in Camden and Islington at our June 2019 Volunteering Fair. 

We are once again joining forces with our good friends @ Volunteer Centre Islington in the heart of King's Cross at CANOPY MARKET, West Handyside Canopy (just off Granary Square, the one with the fountains - and in the covered market between Central St Martin's and Waitrose), N1C 4BH on Friday 21st June, 12-2pm.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The space for this fair has been kindly donated by Argent, in part so that their 1000s of employees can volunteer locally. With this in mind the organisations that take part will need to offer volunteering roles in Camden and / or Islington only, and within easy distance of King's Cross. Participants will also need to have flexible volunteering roles available, so everything from short-term, one-off or 'consultancy' type volunteering roles, roles offered outside normal office hours as well as regular ongoing roles. 

With this in mind, we will be asking all participants to let us know where the roles take place and details about the roles they will be recruiting for, so that we can make sure that it fits with what the potential volunteers are looking for. However, saying that, this is an outdoor fair (with covered stalls!) so anyone can drop by which is why it's important to have a variety of roles on offer.  

We look forward to seeing you there. :)

* If you're a person who wants to find a volunteering role, there is no need to book, just turn up on the day.

** If you're an organisation, you're in the right place to make your booking. (Please note: you only need to make one booking per organisation. Thanks.)

*** 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. 




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 Tuesday 18th June.

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. :)
