We all know that volunteering makes a huge difference to the impact to what we make as organisations.
Many of us measure the value of our volunteers by the number of volunteer hours and what these might have cost if we had paid for them, or in terms of services that would not have been delivered without volunteers. Many Volunteer Managers also place high importance on the benefits gained by the volunteers themselves, such as increased employability, confidence, well-being, or community cohesion.
Volunteer Centre Tower Hamlets is pleased to host a seminar by internationally renowned volunteer impact assessment expert, Tony Goodrow. This 3-hour seminar will present a different model that includes cash costs and the consumption of volunteer hours as inputs, and their accomplishments as outputs. It will identify how common methods of reporting may contribute to us devaluing volunteers, and how you can monitor your management of volunteers in order to use volunteers’ time to best effect. This seminar will be informative and will challenge some common beliefs and ways of working. It will help you to explore how you justify or present your volunteer programme more concretely and effectively in funding bids and to senior management. The seminar is suitable for Managers of Volunteers, fundraisers, Chief Executives and funders.
Wednesday 4 February, 10am-1pm
Cost £20 per person
