Overview

An action packed session filled with practical suggestions and plenty of opportunities to share ideas on how to recruit volunteers and keep hold of them!  

Volunteer recruitment is a constant challenge for many organisations. This workshop will explore national and local trends in motivations to volunteer and barriers inhibiting volunteering. Equipped with this knowledge you will have the chance to critique current volunteer recruitment campaigns, before spending time putting together a targeted advert appropriate for an Oxfordshire audience.

There will be opportunities throughout the session to reflect on your current methods of recruitment and volunteer management. OCVA’s Volunteer Co-ordinator will offer her thoughts on how to retain volunteers based on conversations with clients in the Volunteer Centre and the findings of national research.

Outcomes

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Identify what motivates people to start volunteering

  • Identify strategies and approaches to aid volunteer retention
