Seminar 1 – Re-engaging Volunteers

The Centre for Volunteering will be hosting the first of these seminars (on zoom) focusing on re-engaging volunteers as we move forward.
The reintegration of volunteers and adjusting to the ‘new normal’ poses significant challenges for Volunteer Involving Organisations across the sector.
The Centre has gathered a panel of Volunteer Managers from across the sector to speak of their experiences over the past 18 months, the strategies they have used to engage volunteers and those they propose to utilise for the reintegration of their volunteer workforce.
