Inspire: Peer Support for Volunteer Coordinators

“Managing volunteers isn't rocket science......sometimes it's harder!” Jamie Ward-Smith

Are you responsible for co-ordinating and managing volunteers?

Are you challenged by some of the issues this involves? Are you inspired and passionate about how volunteers benefit your work? (and sometimes you may have both thoughts running simultaneously through your head!).

If so, come along to ‘Inspire’.

Inspire is our monthly gathering for people who are new to volunteer management and for people who have years of experience. It’s an opportunity to share experiences and good practice, get advice about tackling sticky volunteer problems or thorny issues, and get peer support from people who really know what it’s like to be a Volunteer Coordinator.

If you have a niggling worry or if you are the only person in your organisation who deals with volunteers, come along and join in. It’s a great opportunity to meet folk from various different settings - the thing we have in common is volunteers. We are always well stocked with coffee and cake to help the proceedings get started!

If there is anything you'd like to talk about, please let Julie know by email or bring your question/concern with you on the day and we’ll add it to the agenda. It’s your group so we aim to make it as easy as possible for you to contribute.

Inspire is completely free, but we do ask people to book.
