Do you want to network, learn and share with other volunteer involving organisations?  Volunteer Organisations Linking Together (VOLT) are free sessions for those who want to focus on a volunteering issue with other like-minded individuals.

We have organised a few follow up sessions to our special COVID-19 related series of VOLT Sessions, looking at volunteering across different themes:

How are things going in light of COVID-19?

  • Volunteering in Environment & Heritage  –  Thursday 17 September 2020 at 11am-12pm
  • Volunteering in Youth Groups  –  Thursday 24 September 2020 at 2-3pm

 

COVID-19 has changed how we do so many things and volunteering is no exception.  The measures such as social distancing, hand sanitising and wearing face coverings, mean that volunteering activities and roles have to be managed and carried out very differently.

These sessions will give you an opportunity to talk to colleagues working in a similar field about your experiences of managing and supporting volunteers under these new circumstances.  You can hear how others are implementing the measures, share ideas, tips and strategies for dealing with any issues or challenges.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Sandra.faulkner@volunteernow.co.uk to book a place, stating very clearly the session(s) you want to attend.  You will then be sent a link and joining instructions before the event(s).
