BME & Refugee Partners in Volunteering

13/06/2012 @ 09:45 - 20:00

An invitation to explore how we can work together to better support and develop volunteers, enabling genuine capacity building for organisations whilst developing the skills & confidence of your volunteer force.

Who is it for:

This session is for BME and Refugee organisations and organisations working with BME and Refugee volunteers in Islington who:

  • Involve volunteers but have limited capacity to manage them
  • Want to provide a richer development experience for volunteers which they can they bring back to the organisation
  • Want to find innovative ways to recruit volunteers
  • Want to explore new partnerships with other organisations

What will happen:

The session will discuss exciting ways for organisations to work together in a changing climate to make the most of resources and volunteer skills and experience, such as:

  • Collaborative training – Joint training where different organisations can contribute and share their different expertise and upskill their volunteers.
  • Joint-volunteering projects to support a wide a range of clients from different organisations.
  • Pioneering a volunteering support network for North London.
  • Explore the potential of creating a specialist pool of volunteers, which can be shared between participating organisations. This gives opportunity for volunteers to learn from each other, and for organisations too!
  • Partnership building – tips and tools for effective partnership working
