Making the Case for Volunteering

Peer Learning Workshop: Making the Case for Volunteering Within Your Organisation

Tuesday 19 July 2022, 10.30am-12.30pm, on Zoom
FREE for organisations with a base or projects in Tower Hamlets

Would you like colleagues and managers within your organisation to have a better understanding of and support for the volunteer programme? Could other internal teams or departments involve more volunteers and/or better support volunteers? Or perhaps you want more financial support for the volunteer programme from internal core funding, or for volunteer costs to be included in project fundraising applications?

During this interactive Peer Learning session, we will hear from Recheal Valderama (Volunteer Hub Coordinator) and Grace Patient (Connect Newham Lead Co-ordinator) at Age UK East London, who will share their experience of working to raise the profile and acceptance of volunteering within their organisation, and what was done to achieve this, including successes, challenges and learning.

There will be plenty of opportunities to discuss experiences, concerns and solutions with peer Volunteer Managers in a safe and confidential environment. This session is suitable for experienced Volunteer Managers as well as those who are new to managing volunteers.

Venue: Zoom (the meeting link will be sent to you when your place is confirmed)

Priority will be given to voluntary sector organisations with a base/office in Tower Hamlets, or that have services aimed at Tower Hamlets residents
