Volunteers may leave us for a variety of reasons and in this workshop we look at how to ease the transition, whatever the circumstances.
We explore exit strategies when volunteers move on, times when you may need to part company with a volunteer and we discuss tricky situations that may arise. We discuss ways to help volunteers remember their time positively and, crucially, to ensure, there is no negative flow-on for your other volunteers and your organisation’s image. Whenever the situation arises, all volunteers need a fond farewell.
