Tariq Khandoker is the Volunteer Centre Coordinator at OCVA.

This involves helping organisations promote their work and their volunteering opportunities through print and electronic media as well as managing Oxfordshire’s premier volunteering brokerage site “oxonvolunteers.org”. He also actively engages with prospective volunteers, helping them to build their confidence and skill set in order to secure their ideal volunteering role.
Kathryn Pickup is one of the Workplace Wellbeing Trainers at local mental health charity, Oxfordshire Mind. Here, Kathryn delivers interactive courses, workshops and presentations which aim to promote understanding of mental health and provide practical tools to support mental health at work. She is also a qualified Mental Health First Aider and has experience volunteering with a range of local charities.
This workshop gives an overview of how both physical and mental health benefits can be used to motivate people into volunteering and is aimed at those who have a role in recruiting volunteers.
You may be new to volunteer recruitment (whether as a paid member of staff or a volunteer responsible for recruiting or managing other volunteers). Experienced recruiters may wish to use the opportunity to reflect and review their organisation’s current practices and develop their volunteer recruitment strategies in line with new developments and research.
