Do you work for an organisation that involves volunteers?
Would you like advice and support with achieiving best practice in volunteer management?
Book a free organisation support session with Volunteering Hounslow and we will support you with all aspects of involving volunteers in your organisation. We use the London Volunteer Management Charter to help you assess your volunteer programme and provide you with templates, best practice guidance, and helpful tips.
The meeting is guided by what support or advice you would like and you will receive a summary of what was discussed, after the meeting. We can give advice on all areas of volunteer management, including the below.
The next support surgery takes place on on the third Wednesday of each month at the CAN mezzanine from 10am - 1pm (three 1 hour slots).
Please note that bookings close 72 hours before the start of the surgery.
Please note that these sessions are for organisations who recruit and manage volunteers. If you are a Hounslow resident who would like support to find a volunteer role, please attend one of our volunteer drop-in sessions (click here for more info).
Volunteering Hounslow periodically offers training for volunteer-involving organisations (VIOs) in order to help them manage their volunteers and increase the effectiveness of the experience for both VIO and volunteer alike.
We also work with external partners to promote other volunteering opportunities that may be available in the borough.
Below is a list of some of the training opportunities that are currently available:
If you are interested in attending any of the above trainings, please get in contact with us via email firstname.lastname@example.org stating the name of the training and how many people you would like to attend.
This is an opportunity for volunteer coordinators to meet, network and share successes and challenges.
