Event description

Description

We're launching the brand new Regional Volunteer Conference and we want you to join in the fun!


The conference will include:

  • Sharing the Impact of the work you do, including how fundraising and retail funds are spent on the services we run to benefit children and families. We hope to introduce you to some of our service users and hear their stories.
  • Sharing Information about a variety of Barnardo's services to help our volunteers understand the valuable work we do with children and their families.
  • A Celebration of volunteering across the Midlands and South West Region. We have some fantastic volunteers out there and we want to take this opportunity to say 'thank you'.
  • A chance to meet other volunteers, share ideas and stories as well as socialise.
  • A Marketplace of informative stands helping volunteers to understand more about the variety of aspects of Barnardo's. We hope these stands will include: Volunteer Forum, Volunteer Benefits, Workplace (the new Facebook for business!), Ebay Hub, Fundraising, Gifts and Wills, Fostering and Adoption, our work in Advocacy, our work in Prisons, our work with Care Leavers, our work in Family Support
  • Some Fun and Games - loosely based around the fun fair, we'll have candy floss, hook-a-duck and more!
  • A raffle with some prizes courtesy of our corporate partners


Sounds great, how do I sign up?

It's simple, just click on the register button at the top of this page and folow the instructions to book your 'Volunteer Ticket'. The deadline for signing up is Wednesday 17th October 2018.


Getting there:

The Swindon Marriott Hotel is near junction 15 of the M4 motorway with plenty of space for parking. It is a short distance from Swindon train station and we'll be operating a shuttle minibus from the station to the venue. This must be booked in advance. Please indicate when booking if you will need this service and we will then be in touch to gather more details.

Volunteer Expenses are available via your local service. We encourage shared transport where possible to keep the costs down. Please speak to your local Volunteer Coordinator or Manager for more details about how to claim expenses.
