Is volunteer management the key?

Here at TimeBank we believe that everyone should be able to volunteer and that it should be part of the fabric of everyday life. There’s no denying that it takes time, energy and commitment  but if all goes well you will have one of the best experiences while doing so.

I believe that good volunteer management is the key to having a good volunteering experience.  In these days of cuts, there is a worry that this maybe an easy slice of the cake to chop off but we must remember that effective volunteer management leads to effective and impactful volunteering.

Thats why I am supporting the Value Volunteer Management campaign which aims to increase awareness of the value and importance of investing in volunteer management.

If you are a volunteer manager another great source of information and guidance is the Association of Volunteer Managers website which is volunteer run and led by people who are volunteer managers, so they know what they're talking about.
