Volunteer Managers‘ Forum - Coming to the West of Fife!
Created: 29/10/2019, Updated: 21/11/2019
When: 09.30am-11.30am (09.15am for tea/coffee/biscuits and informal networking), Thursday 05 December 2019 Where: Queen Margaret Room at Dunfermline Museum and Galleries, 1-7 Abbot Street, Dunfermline, KY12 7NL This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs 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 £10.00 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.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
Great news! Our Volunteer Manager's Forum is coming to West Fife!
Join us to hear more about working with Volunteers with Lived Experience - what we can all learn. We believe that this topic is one that everyone involved in the management of volunteers can engage with - no matter what your organisation does, so come along to learn more and have your say.
4 Great Reasons to Attend this Forum
We’ll explore the issue of service users moving into volunteering with your organisation – a very common recruitment path for hundreds of organisations in Fife
We’ll hear from Fife based organisations who manage this process effectively and want to share their experiences
We’ll discuss the potential risks of recruiting people with direct or indirect lived experience of your organisation’s area of work (including: mental health issues, substance misuse, criminal justice system, homelessness and many more)
There’s an ever-increasing focus on the involvement of service users and people with lived experience in service design and delivery – Don’t miss out on attending what promises to be an enlightening session, places are limited so book today!
