Volunteering England launches two volunteer management initiatives

New Support Resource for People Managing Volunteers

Volunteering England’s new Volunteer Management Portal, launched this June, acts as a gateway to the world of volunteer management with links to over a thousand resources across England.

This means that – for the first time – information on support, training and development opportunities for people managing volunteers is available to view in one single place.

If you work with volunteers, or know someone who does, this invaluable new resource will help you locate a wide variety of training providers and consultants, support and development opportunities.

Visit the portal at http://www.volunteering.org.uk/vmportal

A different kind of investment – what does your organisation stand to gain?

Volunteering England recently launched the Value Volunteer Management Campaign to increase awareness of the value and importance of investing in volunteer management. Many key organisations have already shown support, including the BBC, Microsoft, Barnardo’s, RSPB, National Trust and PDSA.

These organisations know that investing in professional and strategic volunteer management really boosts the value they gain from volunteering, leading to increased budgets, raised organisational profile, strengthened service provision, improved community relations and much, much more.

Visit the campaign site at http://www.volunteering.org.uk/valuevolunteermanagement and find out what your organisation stands to gain. Make sure you sign the Value Volunteer Management Endorsement while you’re there!

Both these initiatives are funded by the Office for Civil Society as part of Capacitybuilders’ Volunteer Management Programme.
