We Want Volunteers
Recruiting, Retaining and Rewarding Volunteers via BVA
Getting the right people volunteering for your organisation can be the key to getting the right skills and experience on board and making your organisation run more smoothly. There are lots of reasons why people volunteer and are often very willing to help. To gain new skills, meet new people and have fun, share their expertise or to make a real difference to their community.
When new volunteers come on board it is important to create a positive working environment. Be clear about what you need upfront and what tasks you will be asking your volunteers to carry out plus the hours they are required. Make sure volunteers are adequately trained, supported and reimbursed for out of pocket expenses and thanked for their support. For more information click here.
If your organisation needs help with recruitment of volunteers, take the opportunity to use Volunteer North Hampshire to get access to your local volunteer database. This will allow details to be made available to the community and potentially gain the Volunteers you require.
To have opportunities promoted on the website your organisation needs to be registered. If you are not currently registered please complete an Organisation Registration Form.
Once you have confirmation that your organisation is registered please complete an Opportunity Registration Form
Both forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and if you require any assistance please contact us on 01256 423816 or via this email.
Reach Volunteering – Skills based Volunteers
Reach Volunteering compliments the local roles of Volunteer North Hants and allows organisations to register free to post opportunities especially including Trustee roles from a wider distance. Their aim is to connect people, skills and good causes and allows a wider promotion with the opportunities for good quality volunteers to also potentially assist remotely.
Don’t forget the BVA Volunteer North Hants site to post local roles and maybe drop into BVA to discuss role descriptions and publicity.
