Effective support and supervision of volunteers is key to a successful volunteer programme.
Why? Because it provides an ongoing way of making sure that a volunteers’ needs and motivations for volunteering are being met. These can change over time, and it’s a good idea to keep up with those changes.
Regular support and supervision can also prevent the dreaded volunteer burnout!
So we all know how important it is, yet how should it be done?
During the day we will cover:
- The difference between general support and structured supervision
- Different methods of delivering support and supervision
- Tips on preparing for and running a supervision session
- Practicing some of the skills required to offer volunteers effective support and supervision
- Any concerns you might have on conducting supervision sessions
By the end of the morning, you will be able to identify practical and realistic ways to support volunteers. The workshop will be interactive and will feature exercises which you will explore in small groups.
