Training for volunteer managers

VCTH FREE Volunteer Retention - Converting Volunteers from 'Starters' into 'Stayers'
Thursday 19 August 2021, 10.30am – 1pm, free on Zoom
Would you like your volunteers to stay on longer with your organisation? This practical and interactive Zoom session will look at good practice and provide tips on encouraging them to continue volunteering with your organisation. We will cover:
  • Identifying volunteers’ motivations and how you can accommodate them
  • Detecting key ‘pressure points’ at which a volunteer may leave and how to address the issues
  • Thinking about progression routes for existing volunteers
  • Adapting your volunteer induction, training and supervision processes to focus on retention
  • Ensuring that volunteers and staff have realistic expectations
  • Creating a ‘volunteer friendly’ culture
  • Sharing ideas on types of reward and recognition
Priority will be given to voluntary sector organisations with a base/office in Tower Hamlets, or that have services aimed at Tower Hamlets residents. Book here.
