Support and training

There are several ways that we help organisations who recruit volunteers:

Volunteer Organiser's Forum

The VOF is open to members of Volunteer Bristol who have responsibility for looking after volunteers.  The group, which has over 100 members, meets every other month, for a mixture of networking and workshops.  Recent meetings have been hosted by Fareshare, UWE Volunteering and Lifeskills

The next meeting will be 12th March 2014 from 10-12.30 at Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled. Please email if you have any questions about VOF meetings or would like to host a meeting in the future.

Membership of the Forum is included in our membership package.

Volunteer Management Training  

The next training course is Volunteers and the Law on 18th March 2014 from 9.30-1.00. For more information and to book see Voscur's website

We can also develop bespoke training courses or workshops for your staff or volunteers.  For further details please contact us.

We provide a regular bulletin featuring news, legal updates, training information, and good practice tips.  This is free to all members.
