Training for volunteer managers

Training for Volunteer Managers: COVID-19: Managing Risks in Your Volunteer Programme
Thursday 2 July 2020, 10.30am - 12.30pm, FREE on Zoom

**This is a repeat of the training held on 25 June 2020. Please do not book if you have already attended. However, your colleagues are welcome to register**

Now that some COVID-19 restrictions are starting to be lifted, but others will remain in place for several months, many organisations are thinking about re-starting services and developing new ways of working. This practical and interactive training will enable you to think through risks to volunteers, staff and service users, and ways of minimising them in the current context including:
* risks of transmitting the virus
* risk management for 'at risk' people (e.g. over 70s, people with existing medical conditions)
* risks related to vetting volunteers and safeguarding everyone
* data protection risks due to remote working
* risk of losing long-serving volunteers who cannot volunteer at the moment.

The session will include lots of group discussion to share ideas, as well as templates and examples of risk assessments. Priority will be give to voluntary sector organisations with a base/office in Tower Hamlets, or that have services aimed at Tower Hamlets residents. Book your place.
