Introduction: Whether behind the scenes and  administrative roles or working directly with clients, volunteers play a vital role in supporting the work of organisations across our town. For many organisations, without the work of volunteers it would not be possible for them to deliver the services they provide in the way they do. Given the central role that volunteers play in allowing organisations to achieve their objectives it is perhaps surprising that many of those responsible for managing volunteers receive little or no specialised training.    Content: This 1 day interactive session is designed to provide an overview of some of the key aspects to consider when involving volunteers in the work of your organisation, including:  First steps - a volunteer recruitment checklist.

Understanding volunteers’ desires - what motivates people to volunteer? Standing out from the crowd - promoting your opportunities effectively.   Welcome aboard - integrating volunteers into your team and managing workloads.  Keep it legal - exploring legal aspects of involving volunteers in you work. Staying the course - keeping volunteers engaged and adapting to changing circumstances/ needs.  Who should attend? This course is ideally suited to anyone who has responsibility for overseeing the work of volunteers, either as a Volunteer Manager or as part of a more wide reaching role. Ideal for those new to working with volunteers or for those looking for a refresher, the session will provide opportunities to put theory into practice by giving opportunities to explore your own organisations needs.  RVA supports Reading's Voluntary and Community Sector, therefore this course is primarily open to organisations delivering voluntary and community services in Reading.
If you do not offer services in Reading, please contact us before booking, and we may be able to add you to the waiting list. Your trainers: The session will be co-delivered by Reading Voluntary Action’s Advice Worker Herjeet Randhawa and Volunteering Development Manager Steve Hendry, both of whom have extensive experience of providing advice and support in the area of volunteer management and governance. Cost and what is included: The cost is £25 for a full day and includes refreshments, a light lunch and materials. Please book through the link above.
