Event description
This webinar provides guidance for volunteer group Coordinators and those involved in leading volunteering efforts in the East Midlands.

About this Event

Leading a group of volunteers or managing volunteering efforts during an emergency can be a daunting experience, even for the most experienced. This webinar from Communities Prepared provides guidance for Community Emergency Volunteer (CEV) Coordinators, Lead Flood Wardens and anyone involved in organising volunteering efforts within their community. Discussion points include managing volunteers and maintaining engagement and how to integrate or build upon partnerships with the wider emergency response structure. This webinar will be co-delivered with the Environment Agency’s East Midlands Flood Resilience Team, Derbyshire County Council's Emergency Planning Team and Nottinghamshire County Council's Emergency Planning Team, to provide local knowledge and expertise and promote a joined-up approach to community resilience.

Join this session to build your knowledge on a range of key topics, including

• Leadership skills

• Organising training sessions

• Managing volunteer debriefing sessions

• Writing risk assessments

As well as giving advice on managing a group during an emergency, the session also provides tips on setting up a group and running training sessions, based on first-hand experience from volunteer groups.

Throughout the webinar we will be referring to the training handbook on which this session is based. You can download and read CEV Coordinator from the Communities Prepared hub. If you are not currently a member, you will be prompted to register – it’s free to join! For any questions regarding the hub, please contact Communities Prepared at
