Latest Volunteer Management Workshops
Lincolnshire Community & Voluntary Service (LCVS) in partnership with Voluntary Centre Services (VCS) and the Lincolnshire Volunteer Centres, have developed a series of Volunteer Management workshops to help voluntary sector groups and charities improve their skills and knowledge in recruiting, supporting and valuing their volunteers. The programme is free for voluntary sector groups and charities working in Lincolnshire who are looking to involve and recruit volunteers.
The latest programme of workshops will be taking place in July 2023. The programme consists of 3 workshops which will be delivered over 5 half day sessions virtually, on Zoom and will cover the volunteer journey from preparing your group for volunteers, to recruiting and supporting your volunteers to saying goodbye.
As the workshops follow on from one another, to get the most from the workshops we recommend that you are available to attend a minimum of 4 out of the 5 workshops. Please register for each of the events you are able to attend through Eventbrite here.
Please note that this course is very popular and places are limited. Please only book on if you are definitely intending to attend. For more information contact Katy Gale 07508 950438 or email email@example.com
Details of the full programme of Workshops are below:

Workshop 2: Recruiting and Welcoming Volunteers & Making Volunteering Accessible to All
Aims: To be able to recruit and attract volunteers effectively for your organisation and have a wide range of volunteer roles available. We will also look at how you can make your organisation more inclusive for volunteers with additional needs and have a wider range of volunteers involved.

Workshop 3: Supporting, Supervising, Valuing and Developing Volunteers
Aims: To gain a greater understanding of how to support, value and develop volunteers with tips on conducting a good supervision session. We will also look at how you can deal with difficult situations and saying goodbye to volunteers.
Before attending you will be sent all the course materials including a Volunteer Policy Template and provided with a Toolkit to complete for your organisation. The Toolkit will be worked through alongside the Workshops. This will give you all you need to hopefully put a robust volunteering programme in place.
Please also note that, due to our funding criteria, these workshops are only available for charities, community groups and partner organisations working and operating in Lincolnshire.
An email will be sent to you a week before each workshop and the day before each workshop giving you the Zoom link and providing you with the handouts and activities required during the workshop.
