    This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of 25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.

    We asked people who attended these sessions earlier in the year, what they liked most about our training - here are some of their comments:

    • "Talking over ideas and methods"
    • "I have always found the trainers to be very knowledgable re their topics"
    • "Chance to network and work with others"  
    • "(topic) made easier to understand"
    • "Meeting new people and being involved in group activities"

    This course will enable you and your organisation to feel more confident in understanding the difference between equality and diversity. This can then enable your organisation to recruit volunteers who can potentially bring along a vast amount of varied skills and knowledge that may support the skill set that you already have as well as boosting the services you provide.

    Included in this course:

    •    The difference between equality and diversity;
    •    What is meant by the 'protected characteristics';
    •    The benefits of promoting diversity in your volunteer team;
    •    Overcoming barriers/stereotypes;
    •    How we can support you.

    Who should attend

    Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation.

    In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options with you.

    Venue

    Please note that courses 1 - 5 will all be held in the same venue.
