    This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action
    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.

    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.

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

    • “Great content + positive teamwork in small groups + very good to have 2 trainers working together to cover a broad range and make delivery smoother”
    • “Thinking about issues and solutions”
    • “The interactive nature, speaking to others who have more knowledge”
    • “I liked sharing ideas with other people from other organisations”
    • “The facilitators are very informative and knowledgeable”
    • “Great opportunities for professional dialogue.”
    • “The interaction and advice from others in the group. Talking about managing difficult situations.”

    Course Aims:

    To help participants develop their ideas, skills and strategies regarding offering support to volunteers.

    Topics to be covered on the course are:

    •    What is support;
    •    Methods of support;
    •    Methods of supervision;
    •    Managing difficult situations;
    •    Dismissing/counselling out volunteers.

    Who should attend

    Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation. Your organisation should be providing a service in Fife.

    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.

    Cancellation Policy

    Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event.   A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate. 

    Additional Information

    Notes from the session will be provided to participants on completion of a post-training evaluation form which will be e-mailed to you.
