About this event

Facilitated by Lisa Cunningham

Recruiting, Retaining, and Managing Volunteers is absolutely key to our success - look at the amazing difference made by volunteers throughout lockdown. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our charities and as money becomes tighter, their role is more and more important in supporting us to achieve our mission.

SCVS are offering you, the leaders and managers of our local charities, the opportunity to attend, via Zoom, two training sessions to provide information and guidance on recruiting, retaining, and managing volunteers.

The two sessions will be offered as a series, but you are welcome to attend just one if you feel that will help you most.

Part 1 on Tuesday 28th September 2021 at 10am. 1.5 hours session is Recruiting Volunteers and will include:

  • Recruiting new volunteers - your team for the future
  • Identifying the right people for the right roles
  • Writing an interesting and attractive role description
  • Attracting volunteers with the skills, experience, and passion your group needs
  • Preparing volunteers for their role and your organisation to onboard them

Part 2 on Tuesday 5th October 2021 at 10am. 1.5 hours session is Retaining and Managing Volunteers and will include:

  • Providing induction and guidance for volunteers
  • Supporting volunteers to help them recognise their value
  • Retaining volunteers
  • Managing volunteers and ensure that everything they do for your group is legal
  • Ensuring that everything you and your charity do with volunteers is legal and does not compromise the service you offer
  • Recognising volunteer commitment by providing them with a worthwhile, safe, and legal environment
  • Say thank you

You can really make a difference!

This training is free to join but there is a cost to us to deliver it, so if you sign up and are unable to attend, please let us know so we can offer your place to someone else. For all of our training we need a minimum of 10 participants and may need to cancel if we have insufficient interest.

Slough CVS is a local charity funded to support groups in Slough, Windsor, Ascot , Maidenhead and surrounding areas so please only register for this training if you provide services or intend to volunteer in the areas we serve. If we have places available 24 hours before the start of the training and you would like to attend but are not in our area of benefit, please email and we will try to accommodate you.

Thank you for your cooperation.
