Workshop Overview 

Organisations, clubs and groups often find themselves short of volunteers. The way that people volunteer and the time they have to give is not the same as it used to be. Ensuring volunteers feel recognised, rewarded and part of the team is essential.  Although this session will be online you can get a flavour of the workshop from this video The Club Matters Workshop Experience – YouTube 

“Well presented given that it was an online workshop.  Good to be interactive and to have breakout rooms to meet other delegates. Plenty of good ideas to take forward” 

Workshop Outcomes 

  • Develop a positive culture of volunteering within your organisation, club or group 
  • Identify how to develop the volunteer’s experience 
  • Identify top tips in recruiting, retaining and rewarding volunteers 
  • Develop an action plan to improve volunteer experience
