Rethinking Volunteering in Environmental & Heritage Groups in Light of COVID-19

Rethinking Volunteering in Environmental & Heritage Groups in Light of COVID-19

A special COVID-19 related series of Volunteer Now Members’ Sessions to look at volunteering across a series of themes started on 14 May with Rethinking Volunteering in Charity Shops Post COVID-19.

Volunteers have been at the heart of the local community response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Whether helping out a neighbour to get some shopping, joining up with a community group to deliver food parcels or telephoning someone isolated, volunteers have been making a difference to how people are coping in these challenging times.  Some organisations have had to rethink how they involve volunteers and unfortunately some have had to stop what they are doing completely.

So what does this mean for volunteering as we move out of these difficult days?  What will volunteering look like in the future?  Will COVID-19 change how we think about and manage volunteering?

The session will give you an opportunity to talk to colleagues working in a similar field about experiences of Volunteering in Lockdown and share ideas, tips and strategies for Volunteering after Lockdown:

  • Issues and challenges
  • Existing and/or new roles
  • Doing things differently
  • Profiles of volunteers and implications for going forward
  • Impact on volunteering
  • Making the most of volunteer stories

If you are interested in attending, please contact [email protected] to book a place.  You will then be sent a link with joining instructions the day before the session. For more information, click here.
