Connected Communities – Ten top tips for making your organisation attractive to volunteers – FULLY BOOKED


We’ll explore ten key areas you can focus on to make your organisation even better at getting great volunteers. From the importance of simply thanking volunteers to principles of leadership and why good customer care is important, this workshop will confirm some essentials and give you new ideas to try.

The session will be hosted by Rob Jackson, a non-portfolio member of the Heritage Volunteering Group Executive Board and has been actively involved with HVG since 2017. Rob has worked in the volunteering movement for almost 30 years, during which time he has led and managed volunteers and volunteering in education, advice, fundraising and children’s services settings at local, regional and national levels. As well as his expertise in volunteerism, Rob has strong links with the fundraising world. He spent six years as a member of the Institute of Fundraising’s Standards Committee and chaired the Institute’s working party which developed the UK’s first code of good practice on volunteer fundraising.
