‘I am actually on annual leave this week, but couldn’t resist coming along’
[cite]Forum participant, February 2018 [/cite]


Our latest programme of Forums finished in April 2019. If you are interested in future Forums or support in the meantime, please contact  Staff member at your local Voluntary Action. Contact details are available here.

Please note that while the Forums are delivered locally across the county, if you are responsible for involving and engaging volunteers and are based anywhere in East Sussex, you can go to any of these Forums…a warm welcome awaits you.

The Forums are designed as informal meetings that allow anyone working with volunteers the opportunity to learn and talk more about specific volunteering topics as well as offering the chance to;

  • Meet with other people working with volunteers throughout East Sussex
  • Get up to date information about volunteer management training, funding and other volunteering initiatives in your area.
  • Discover the latest news from the national volunteering sector and how it affects your organisation.

Although each Forum has a focused topic, there are no formal agendas or minutes and no need to send apologies. It doesn’t matter if you have worked with volunteers for five minutes, or for five years and more…everyone has something to offer and you will be very welcome.

Attendance at all the Forums is completely free but there is often limited space in the venues and demand for places is usually high, so to be sure of your place.
