National Volunteering Forum: Volunteering in a Crisis

  • Start: 7th December, 2022 @ 2:00PM
  • End: 7th December, 2022 @ 4:30PM
  • Online event

Join NCVO and other sector leaders to hear how lessons from covid-19 can help us to support volunteers during the cost of living crisis.

The voluntary sector adapted rapidly to address the challenges presented by covid-19. The way that organisations changed their recruitment, support, and management of volunteers continues to impact the volunteer experience.

Now, two and a half years on, the sector is facing another crisis. The rising cost of living is affecting the demand for services, the ability to attract and retain volunteers, and the time that volunteers can give whilst they too face emotional and financial challenges.

Session content

During the National Volunteering Forum, you will:

  • gain insights on recent volunteer-related research including Time Well Spent, the Mobilising Voluntary Action report and the Civil Society Almanac 2022
  • discuss the experiences of volunteers during covid-19
  • identify challenges and barriers to volunteering at a time of crisis
  • look at practical ways organisations can engage and retain volunteers through the cost of living crisis.
