Virtual Volunteering Fair

Date: 25th to 28th January 2021

We are intending to run a Virtual Volunteering Fair at the end of January to give groups an opportunity to promote the fantastic work of your good cause, the responsibilities that volunteers take on within it, and the specific volunteering roles that you are or will be looking to fill.

The fair will run similar to what was produced for the #BDBigThankYou day in August. You could decide to make a video, interview a volunteer about what they do (filmed or written), send photos or a presentation, or ask one of your volunteers to do something. It will be your platform to raise the awareness of how people can contribute to your good works through volunteering. The choice is yours.

They will have to be things that we can get on a web site, but otherwise the only things holding you back would be your imagination and our technical ability!

The Fair will run over the week of the 25th to the 29th of January, but to allow us to build it we would need your contributions by the 15th of January. If you are interested in participating (and have not already contacted us) please email

Dates: 9th February 2021 and 11th February 2021

We are looking at whether there is demand for Safeguarding sessions based on the following format:

  • 20 minute presentation – refresher of key information
  • 40 minutes of information developed to respond to participants pre-submitted Q&As (these would have to be general questions as it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss specific cases / individuals in a group setting)

The session would be a refresher.

If you would be interested please would you email stating whether you would be interested in a session on Safeguarding for Children or Vulnerable Adults.
