Every six weeks, the volunteer centre host a meeting specifically for volunteer coordinators. This is a chance for volunteer coordinators, from any organisation, to come together and discuss everything related to volunteering. This could be best practice knowledge, volunteer trends or general volunteering issues. It is a great chance to network with other volunteer coordinators, share information and gain peer support.
The meetings are very casual and we undertsand you may not be able to attend all the meetings on the schedule, and that is ok by us. We take notes from the session, which we share afterwards for you to keep involved.
If you would like to be included on the mailing list for the meetings, please fill in your details below.
You can also find our upcoming meetings listed here, which you can also register your attendance for. We will update the topics for each meeting, closer to the time.

Welcome and Introductions / Project Updates
A chance to meet everyone attending the meeting and hear a bit about their current projects/work.
Chris Ducker from SYHA will join us and update us on the new Good Work project.
11.25am – 11.30am
A quick update about plans for this year’s volunteers week.
Sarah Atkinson joins from Caja to talk to us about a current project that is building on the Be Cancer Safe work, which involves working together to reduce harm, tackle inequalities and save lives by ’nudging’ people to go to services earlier to prevent cancer developing and to diagnose cancer earlier.
While the project focusses around cancer, she will workshop with us some behavioural science techniques that you will all find useful to use in future communication with staff, volunteers and the public.
