Events for organisations

We hold a number of events throughout the year for volunteer coordinators and organisations that involve volunteers. Find out about our upcoming training events for organisations by visiting our training page.


Organisation support surgeries

We hold a free monthly surgery for organisations to meet one of our friendly Volunteering Barnet staff members to discuss voluteer roles, recruitment and retention, management, reward and recognition and any other issues related to volunteering. We use the London Volunteer Management Charter, as agreed by members of Greater London Volunteering (GLV), as a framework during our surgeries.

Other events

As well as support surgeries, we hold a number of other events for Barnet organisations that involve volunteers. 

Twice a year we hold our Volunteer Coordinators' Forum giving Volunteer Coordinators the opportunity to meet, network and develop their Best Practice in Volunteer Management. Our next Coordinators' Forum will be held in 2018.

Volunteers' Week is the most important event in the volunteering calendar, and takes place in the first week of June every year. We run a volunteer recruitment fair to mark the week and celebrate volunteering. You can find out how our 2017 fair went by clicking here.

We support a number of community and volunteer events throughout the year, including Social Action projects.
