Calling all volunteers in Wiltshire – Your views matter. Have your say and help shape the future of volunteering in Wiltshire. Thursday 13th May, 12.00 – 2pm

26th April 2021, 11:53am | By David |

Volunteers, like you, have made an enormous difference to Wiltshire’s communities, particularly throughout the Covid 19 pandemic.   The experience you have had matters and we would like to hear how volunteering has been for you, so we can learn from it and make a difference for the future.

Volunteers and volunteer managers are invited to an online event taking place on Thursday 13th May between 12.00 and 2pm.   Hosted by Wessex Community Action in collaboration with the Volunteering Research Hub, a Research Centre at the University of Winchester, this event will bring volunteers from across Wiltshire together, to meet-up, connect and take part in a workshop.  The workshop will;

  • Provide an opportunity to share volunteering experiences
  • Gather valuable feedback particularly around models of volunteering (formal/informal and other), recruitment, management and support for volunteers and volunteer managers available
  • Share your thoughts and reflections and help shape and influence the future of volunteering in Wiltshire

Whether you are a seasoned volunteer, new to the role or are a volunteer manager or coordinator, your views matter.   If you work, the workshop will start at 12.30 for an hour, so you will be able to join us during your lunch break.  Your experience will feed into work being undertaken by the Volunteering Research Hub and will be equally useful for local statutory authorities, volunteering organisations and volunteers.

To sign up for the event please visit https://forms.gle/TktwcwQG4LPGPEqp6

Wessex Community Action is excited to be working with the Volunteering Research Hub at the University of Winchester (UoW).  Dr Debra Gray, a Reader in Social Psychology in the Department of Psychology at UoW and Director of the centre, will be jointly facilitating the event.  Dr Gray has published several research reports that consider volunteer motivations and experiences see http://volunteeringresearchhub.co.uk/ for more information.
