Creating Chances4Volunteering (Slough)


A half day workshop broken down into three sessions:

  • Supported Volunteering Landscape - considering the present state of supported volunteering in the UK and the challenges that organisations & projects face in developing SV initiatives
  • Building a Project - explore the elements & tools that can help you build a productive SV programme
  • Knowledge Exchange - sharing thoughts & experience of what it takes to identify and implement solutions to barriers to volunteering

Delegates will come away with

  • a broader understanding of the range of supported activities being undertaken across the UK
  • signposting for existing resources for developing their SV projects and a chance to suggest new tools
  • an introduction to the potential of the website as a resource and community of like-minded individuals and organisations.
