Volunteer Management Course 5: Managing Risk in Your Volunteering Programme
Created: 22/11/2017, Updated: 07/03/2018
When: 9.30am-1.00pm, Wednesday 28 March 2018 Where: Craig Mitchell House, Flemington Road, Glenrothes, KY7 5QF 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.
**There is still availability for this course**
