Event description


Welcome to the NCT NW Networking Day 2017! - Draft plan May 2017

Volunteer training

Networking days are for members and supporters to get together, socialise, and share successes and problems, as well as receive training. It is a chance for everyone to learn from each other and find out more about the work of the NCT throughout the UK and at regional level. They also serve as an opportunity to talk and ask questions about a variety of upcoming issues and events besides those on the set agenda.

On 22nd July we will be offering a mix of training sessions in small groups looking at (at least):

Recruiting, retaining and managing volunteers

Supporting all parents

Introduction to Volunteering

Social Media


Possibly more if there is call for it - just ask and I'll see what I can do!

The format of the day is subject to change based on who and how many people are coming - obviously if everyone coming has done an introduction to volunteering we'll do something else!

If you want to help with any of the above, or want to add to the list then email Cath at or post on the NW NCT Volunteers Facebook group.

So why not come along and persuade your fellow volunteers to come to a regional training day?

There is no charge for attending and travel costs can be claimed back from your branch.

You can chose to come for the whole day or just morning or afternoon, it's up to you! Book your ticket and let us know!

Coffee on arrival, lunch and afternoon coffee are provided for those attending - I suspect there will be cake, there usually is, I can't help buying it!

If you've never attended before don't worry. This is a great opportunity for networking, gaining valuable training and asking questions. It's free to attend and you can reclaim your travel expenses from your branch.

Babes in arms are welcome, if you can't get childcare you can bring your older children as well but there is no creche facility available so you'll need to bring some toys too.

Not a branch volunteer yet? You can still attend and meet other volunteers before you decide on a role within a branch.
