Call out for volunteer involving organisations ahead of marketplace

A call out is encouraging volunteer involving organisations to get involved with Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway’s evening visit to Lockerbie next month

We are holding a volunteer recruitment marketplace at the Town Hall on Thursday July 11 and a free workshop will also be available to any organisations that wish to take part.

The workshop will help organisations at any stage in their development to: think about their processes around volunteering; get ready to involve volunteers in their organisation; and help support and develop existing volunteers.

It’s no secret that it is becoming increasingly difficult to attract not only volunteers but also new trustees. This workshop will guide your organisation through how to become one that people want to volunteer for

The workshop aims to help you: 

  • Understanding why people volunteer?
  • Why recruit more volunteers?
  • Reasons why people do not volunteer?
  • How would you recruit new members?
  • What can help to recruit a volunteer?
  • Are there barriers?
  • What do you do once you have recruited a new volunteer?
  • Why celebrate your volunteer’s contribution

The workshop will run alongside our Volunteer Market Place, which is from 4pm-7pm
