Maximise your volunteering opportunities online: Volunteer Connect + Social Media

19/03/2019 @ 10:00 - 13:00

This practical workshop is aimed at organisations looking for volunteers in Islington that haven’t started using Volunteer Connect yet or have done it but need a bit of extra support with the volunteering online database.

Volunteer Connect is a dedicated volunteering portal available through VAI’s website for volunteers, organisations and their roles in Islington. The online database allows people to match their skills and interests with volunteering opportunities and for organisations to find suitable volunteers for their roles.

This half day workshop will provide participants with information about their organisation registration process on Volunteer Connect including details about creating good role descriptions and also how to interact with potential volunteers interested in your volunteering opportunities through the portal. It will also provide some information about how to link your opportunities on Twitter/Facebook and a few tips about these popular social media platforms.

This session is part of the advice training programme organised by Voluntary Action Islington to provide free help to improve the knowledge and skills of smaller Islington based community organisations.

Please e-mail your interest to with the name of your organisation and some details about your knowledge on Volunteer Connect.
Participants will need to bring a laptop or tablet to follow the workshop.
