Volunteer Coordinators' forum
Do you recruit, manage or supervise volunteers?
Would you like to meet with other people in a similar situation and share knowledge and experiences?
Twice a year Volunteer Barnet run a free Volunteer Coordinators' forum giving Volunteer Coordinators the opportunity to meet, network and develop their Best Practice in Volunteer Management. You are invited to join this event; bringing the wealth of experience you have working with volunteers, to look at current challenges facing your organisation and similar organisations in the borough with regards to your volunteer management.
Thank you to all the organisations who attended our Spring 2018 forum! Keep an eye out for details of our next forum.
Volunteers' Week 2018
Volunteers' Week takes place in the first week of June every year. We run a training session for volunteer managers and a volunteer recruitment fair to mark the week and celebrate volunteering.
After such successful events over the last two years at the artsdepot, we are back! This year our event will be held Wednesday 6 June. To book a free spot for the training session, a table at the fair or both, please click here.
