Supporting Volunteers

Volunteers who are well supported from the start are happy volunteers and happy volunteers are more likely to make a difference.

Training 7

So how do you support them? Support goes beyond simply meeting volunteers regularly, it is about building a positive relationship with volunteers from the start. This course will help you plan and deliver a suitable induction process and identify and apply different support methods throughout a volunteer’s time with you. It will also help you manage some of the challenges of supporting volunteers. 

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Identify and apply the right support methods for the individual.
  • Design a volunteer induction process.
  • Manage challenging volunteer situations.
  • Create positive endings for volunteers
