Volunteering - Without volunteers many groups will simply be unsustainable. This workshop will take a fresh look at how we might develop ways to encourage different types of volunteering opportunities and ensure they are accessible and beneficial for everyone.
Along the way we will explore solutions to the following questions:
- What do your volunteers need in the foreseeable future to make their most effective contributions?
- How do you capture new practice and harness it to create a better future for volunteering?
- How can we transition away from approaches that no longer benefit us and address some of volunteering's most entrenched inequalities?
Join us on Thursday 21st September 2023 at Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation offices, One Garden City, Broadway, Letchworth SG6 3BF.
Facilitated by North Herts & Stevenage Centre for Voluntary Services (NH&SCVS) and GoVolHerts.org.uk, the county’s leading volunteer recruitment portal.
