Marketing your volunteer opportunities – BIG change coming!
Hastings Voluntary Action, Jackson Hall, Portland Place, Hastings TN34 1QN
Experience has shown that people looking to volunteer very rarely tend to put themselves forward to do ‘anything at all’. In fact people tend to be very discerning about how to offer their time and want to volunteer for things that primarily look both interesting and exciting. Increasingly this means that many organisations wanting to recruit volunteers need to think carefully about how to attract them. The theme of this forum will focus on enabling people working with volunteers to take matters further into their own hands. We will discuss advertising that really works and offer a thought about some approaches that don’t do so well!
During the forum we will also reveal and demonstrate the changes to Do-It, the national volunteering website. Changes which among other things, will allow organisations to post their volunteer opportunities directly online and are sure to affect everyone who works with volunteers. Please note for this reason we are repeating this Forum to allow as many people working with volunteers to attend.
