Evolve: Support and Supervision of Volunteers - An Essential Tool in your Toolkit

Good Support and Supervision is key to preventing small problems from becoming large scale disasters! It also helps enormously with retention of volunteers; building good relationships and helping volunteers to develop their skills and reflect on their experiences. Why then is it so often at the bottom of people’s ‘to-do’ list and can cause anxiety for managers and volunteers alike? Come along to Evolve and explore this really interesting and valuable tool with Julie Golding, our Delivered Services Manager.

Evolve is our dynamic forum for Volunteer Managers to help with Continuing Professional Development. Evolve brings together volunteer managers with lots of different experience to learn, share experiences, and network.

Each Evolve has a different thematic focus, concentrating on your professional development. Evolve is also an opportunity to give and receive peer support. It is an invaluable tool for everyone with responsibility for recruiting, managing or supporting volunteers (whether paid or as a volunteer, whether in frontline service delivery or serving on a management board or committee) and everyone will be made very welcome.

It's completely free but we do ask people to book so check out details of our next session and please come along.

There will be a presentation and time for questions and discussion.  Please come ready with your questions and comments on this and any other current volunteering management issue you want to get informal peer support with. (Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.)
