THE RIGHT START: Involving Volunteers
Who should attend:
This session is aimed at both paid staff and volunteers who support other volunteers within an organisation.

• Why people volunteer and the importance of motivation
• Volunteer Policy – what does a ‘good’ policy look like?
• Recruitment – writing good role descriptions to recruit effectively
• Supporting volunteers
• Retention of volunteers – reward and recognition
