The first, Working with Volunteers Forum took place via Teams on Tuesday 6th July despite some technical difficulties at the start which excluded Sharon from the proceedings for the first 20 minutes! It was wonderful to finally get some of those interested together to discuss issues and to share knowledge about volunteers  and to set the agenda for future meetings which will be hosted by members in turn and enable debate on specific and agreed subject areas.
If anyone is interested in joining us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either of the two coordinators for the forum.
The next Forum meeting will be hosted by Sharon on Monday 13th September and cover the subject of organisational structures – Are there any staff members in the organisation who manage volunteers? Is there staff support and are there paid volunteer coordinators?
