The Volunteer Coordinators’ Network meeting provides a space for those who oversee the work of volunteers to seek peer support in a confidential space from others in a similar role. It is an opportunity to share best practise and to learn from the rich experiences of colleagues working across our diverse sector.
Volunteering has been at the forefront of the response to the Covid-19 outbreak with volunteers taking on key roles in delivering community initiatives to mitigate the impact of the outbreak. This has seen existing organisations delivering new services as well as transforming existing ones. It has also seen new forms of social action take shape to address community needs.
Volunteering has probably never been more prominent and we have a unique opportunity to help turn those mobilised in the face of an international crisis into the regular core of the volunteering workforce for years to come. We also know that many of those who have come forward during the crises may be feeling demotivated having been underutilised up to this point.
This first VCN to be held since the outbreak is designed to provide an opportunity for us to come together to take stock of the way volunteering has changed in the past few months, draw out any lessons to be learned and to look forward to the challenges and opportunities in involving volunteers in our work in the months and years to come.
