Volunteer Co-ordinators Forum (VCF)

 

 

Volunteer Co-ordinators Forum - What is it?

The Volunteer Co-ordinators Forum (VCF) is a chance for people who look after volunteers, whether as their paid job or as a volunteer themselves, to come together to share good practice, offer peer support, have a cuppa and a catch up.

If you have suggestions for agenda items, hot topics for the voluntary sector or would like to deliver some short peer training please get in touch. Equally, if your organisation has a specialism you would like to share, we can get your group on the agenda. Some specialist examples would be, 'Increasing Diversity', 'Understanding Dyslexia' or 'Involving Volunteers with Mental Health Issues/Young People/Deaf Volunteers or People with a Criminal Record'.

The VCF meetings happen every 6-8 weeks around the city. If you are interested in attending or hosting a meeting please contact the team, call 0161 830 4770 or book at the links posted below.
