2. Lucy from Voiceability attended a Volunteer Managers’ Cafe with our Best Practice Manager Shafia

What made you choose to go to VCC for advice?
Working as a volunteer manager I mostly work independently for a charity that is predominantly providing other services. It is so useful to be able to get advice and specialist support from VCC on specific matters that relate only to volunteering. This advice and support really helps our service ensure that we are providing the best volunteering experience possible for our volunteers.


What did you find useful about the event and/or meeting?
The opportunity to discuss any questions or queries I have face to face.


Organisations that attended our Volunteer Managers’ Forum said it was:

  • Excellent
  • Really supportive and valuable
  • Really good to meet others in same role


Volunteers who attended our Drop-ins said they were:

  • This is a good service, good staff
  • It was very helpful to come in and speak to a person
  • I found the session very useful and the staff pleasant and efficient. I feel better equipped now to explore volunteering opportunities. Thank you.
  • Great help. Very happy to have used Volunteer Centre Camden [to find local volunteering roles]

Volunteers who attended our Appointments said they were:

  • Very helpful to clarify what I want to do and how to negotiate the website
  • Very informative and helpful. No problems!
  • I am very happy that I met Sharon who was very helpful and assisted me in searching the volunteer roles I wanted.
  • I honestly cannot think of anything in which your services need improving.
  • I receive very good support with searching for volunteer roles
  • It was very helpful having a face to face appointment. It gave me the confidence in using the database and discussing the kind of volunteering I am interested in. All the staff were welcoming and supportive.

Volunteers who attended one of our Volunteering Fairs said it was:

  • I found it rewarding and informative.
  • The lady at the front door made it very welcome and it was very professional and friendly
  • There was a really good mix of organisations and range of size of commitment, very interesting.
  • I was not expecting things of voluntary work that offer such good quality experience and training.
    Very much worth my while coming as sometimes searching online can get confusing. Great work.
  • Excellent, worthy causes and friendly open people. Very well organised indeed.

Team UP – Business Volunteering Clients

“We had a really good experience and we would definitely look to do something similar again, so please do add us to your records for this.Thanks again for all the help in making this happen!”

“The help of the volunteers coming from TeamUP in one day would have take us around 2-3 month to complete. I would estimate the project to cost us around £2500-£3000 including labour. Thank you so much!”

“I would recommend TeamUP volunteering to other organisations, your help has been brilliant and really supportive to our charity. We couldn’t have achieved this without all your assistance.”

West Hampstead Women's centre

“It was the youths who attend the youth club who wanted to have it painted. Having the children voices heard and having their say to the place they attend everyday was a massive success for them.”
