Created: 14/07/2021, Updated: 09/09/2021
When: 10.00am-1.00pm, Thursday 11 November 2021 Where: Zoom Call, Anywhere with an internet connection, Online, KY6 2AL 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 £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.
We asked people who attended these sessions earlier in the year, what they liked most about our training - here are some of their comments:
“Good discussions. Focus on what is important to protect volunteers and groups”
“I liked the ability to hear other people’s thoughts and ideas about the topic”
“The discussions and break out rooms which give food for thought.”
“Good pace, interactive, relevant, group work got us thinking about our own practice. Examples were helpful too.”
“Key points re risk assessment highlighted. Policies we should have in place.”
You have a moral responsibility to ensure that volunteers are protected from physical, financial and emotional harm arising from volunteering. This course will support your organisation by ensuring you have the tools and the knowledge to ensure you manage risk effectively.
Included in the course:
• Duty of care and the law;
• Your rights and responsibilities;
• What is risk?
• Risk identification and management;
• Risk register;
• Risk assessments;
• Health and safety policy;
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.
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.
Notes from the session will be sent to all participants who complete a post-training evaluation.
