Getting Your Volunteer Engagement Practice Right (Webinar)

In this session we’ll explore good practice in volunteer engagement and learn practical tips that can help ensure a positive relationship between organisation and the volunteer.

The session will walk you through the basics of volunteer management, and whether you have 2 volunteers or 2,000 the steps taken are the same.

By the end of this session you’ll understand the fundamentals of volunteer engagement and understand why prevention is better than cure in terms of your volunteer programme.  

Stuart Garland is also delivering a half-day workshop on 5 June. Please find the details below:
