Volunteer Management Course 4, Fair and Equal Volunteering
Created: 18/04/2018, Updated: 25/05/2018
When: 09.30am-1.00pm, Thursday 12 July 2018 Where: Volunteer House, 69-73 Crossgate, Cupar, KY15 5AS This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
Here are some of the very positive comments made by previous participants, who attended this training last year:
"Found it really worthwhile"; "Really useful"; "Really informative"; "Thanks, actually really helpful information"; "It’s really great to hear other people’s negative and positive experiences"
"Good support services offered by FVA"
"Good to think about things from a different perspective"
"Chance to discuss questions"; "Liked group discussion"
"All very informative".
This course will enable you and your organisation to feel more confident in understanding the difference between equality and diversity. This can then enable your organisation to recruit volunteers who can potentially bring along a vast amount of varied skills and knowledge that may support the skill set that you already have as well as boosting the services you provide.
Included in this course:
• The difference between equality and diversity;
• What is meant by the 'protected characteristics';
• The benefits of promoting diversity in your volunteer team;
• Overcoming barriers/stereotypes;
• How we can support you.
Who should attend
Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation.
In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options with you.
We ask that you give us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of cancellation. If you do not attend and either do not cancel or give less than 48 hours’ notice, then your organisation will be charged £25.00..
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Notes from the session will be sent to all participants who complete a post-training evaluation, which will be e-mailed to you.
