VAI to continue running the Strengthening Volunteering Project


Maximising potential from Volunteer Management

Strengthening Volunteering Project 2017 – 2018


Voluntary Action Islington has successfully applied to City Bridge Trust to continue running the Strengthening Volunteering Project for another year. The project will work with local organisations to develop and improve the induction and management of volunteers.

We are currently contacting organisations interested in taking part on this project, which we aim to start in September 2017. In total we aim to work with 15 local organisations over the next year.

The project consists of training sessions on volunteer management, one to one advice sessions, direct help to organisations with the induction of volunteers and the development of web based resources and a social media platform so that learning from the project can be shared with others who are interested.

We will work with organisations taking part to develop volunteering roles with additional responsibilities, such as supervision of other volunteers, and support this with training for these volunteers.

Deadline for enrolling: Friday 20th September. As there are only 15 places available, enrolment will be done on a first come first served basis.

If you are interested in being involved in the first stage of this project please email Yvette at Voluntary Action Islington:
