Volunteers: get the best impact by giving the best support
26th May 2015
Good volunteers are gold dust. Or perhaps green dust. Given responsibility and nurturing, volunteers can be central to your organisation’s achievements, and will certainly be key to Bristol’s success as European Green Capital 2015. To help ensure your volunteers are safe, well supported and contribute their individual skills to your projects, Voscur is offering a series of volunteer management training courses for voluntary and community groups.
The courses will cover:
1. Recruiting Volunteers – including writing role descriptions and recruitment
2. Supporting and Retaining Volunteers – from induction to building long-term mutual value
3. Managing Volunteers – including policies and procedures and health and safety
4. Safeguarding Adults and Children – basic awareness
Who’s it for?
Anyone who supports or works with volunteers in the Bristol area. You do not need to be funded by Bristol 2015 to attend as long as you support their aim of making Bristol a healthier and happier city.
Why should I attend?
This interactive training will develop your skills to help increase numbers in your volunteer team and to keep your existing volunteers happy.
Through support from Bristol 2015, Voscur are offering this training at a specially low price of £10 per course for voluntary and community sector groups within the Bristol area.
The Bristol 2015 Volunteer Team website is free to use and there for anyone working with volunteers in Bristol. Register your organisation, post your roles and then use your social media to help spread the word with your existing fans.
