VOLT Session: Keeping It Informal
Volunteer Organisations Linking Together (VOLT) are free sessions for those who want to focus on a volunteering issue with other like-minded individuals.
An opportunity to network and share!
Volunteering has been at the forefront of the COVID-19 response, with huge numbers of people stepping forward to offer support to those in need in their communities. As there was an expectation of immediate involvement for many, some of the more formal processes were set aside and many people were involved through loose informal groups. Therefore, it is imperative that we as a Community and Voluntary Sector learn the lessons from informal volunteering and mutual aid, to ensure that we are better placed to rapidly deploy volunteers and meet their expectations in future.
We welcome Grainne from Eden Projects (recent achievers of the IIV Quality Standard), to provide some insight on the spectrum of volunteering and how we can learn to become more informal in terms of volunteering.
Date: Thursday 21 October 2021
