    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Our Volunteer Managers' Forums are open to anyone who works in Fife and who is involved in the recruitment and/or management/supervision of volunteers.

    Volunteer Management can sometimes be a solitary role within an organisation, and our Forums are a great way to meet other people who are doing a similar role to you and reduce any sense of isolation you may have. There's also the chance to network (formally and informally), catch up with changes happening in the field, discuss issues you may have and ask questions of any guest speaker and FVA staff who will be in attendance. 

    Volunteer recruitment and retention is affected by many factors, and at this forum, we want to help you with both issues. We’ll focus on inclusive volunteering, which can give you access to volunteers you’ve not previously considered.Equality, inclusion and diversity are rightly part of the volunteering agenda, so how do we turn good intentions into good outcomes for all?

    It's a big topic, covering much more than the Equality Act's Protected Characteristics (we'll help you through what these are, what the Scottish Government suggests they should be and what else they might encompass). We'll look at the latest trends, in this category and beyond. We'll dip into a brilliant webinar that Healthcare Improvement Scotland produced on this topic and there will be time to discuss successes and challenges have you had with inclusive volunteering - let's get together in person and find out!

    We'll also hear from Susan McHatton, a member of the Volunteering Development Team who works with people who have barriers to volunteering and employment and who leads on our Step into Volunteering Training. The next series of that training is coming up. This is really useful for those people who are new to volunteering, unconfident about starting a volunteering role or waiting for role-specific training to start. Or maybe waiting for PVG or references to arrive!  Check out FVA's News & Events page for dates and booking details.

    To support networking, we will share your name, organisation and contact e-mail addresses to other attendees at the start of the forum. Please let us know if you do not want your details shared.

    We look forward to welcoming you in person to our Kirkcaldy office - free parking is available for Blue Badge holders.
