Strengthening Communities Through Volunteering

Voluntary Action Islington started working on the Strengthening Communities Through Volunteering project for 12 weeks. The project has been funded by the London Community Response Fund/City Bridge Trust. The aim is to help local voluntary organisations support volunteers and local people better at a time when health & safety and safeguarding are essential and remote working is the new normal.

  • Recruitment in the context of Covid-19
  • Volunteer induction, support and supervision. Methods of remote management.
  • Promoting volunteering opportunities online
  • Safeguarding in the context of Covid-19
  • Staying safe whilst volunteering
