November will see the start of a new Volunteer 'Meet Up' group run by Volunteer Centre Manchester. The two-hour friendly and informal sessions are a great opportunity for registered Volunteers of VCM to meet, socialise, network, share stories, get tips and advice and generally support each other.
After a volunteer begins a role with an organisation the connection to others volunteers outside of that organisation can become hard to develop or sustain. This platform will enable volunteers to be part of a group that will help to address these issues and the “meet ups” are designed in a way that serves you. The meet up group will take place every 6 weeks at Macc and are open to all our registered volunteers.
We acknowledge that a volunteering journey doesn’t end once an opportunity has been accepted and ongoing support for our volunteers is something we take seriously by providing a continued but relaxed approach for volunteers of all levels, from new volunteers right through to experienced ones. Support is given in a multitude of ways including, help with general enquiries, advice and guidance, and training.
If you would like to meet with like minded volunteers then our first “meet up” date is Tuesday 14th November at Macc offices (just behind the Northern Quarter in Manchester) from 10-12pm and you can quickly register here https://www.manchestercommunitycentral.org/civicrm/event/info?id=5178&re...
Alternatively you can contact the team on 0161 830 4770 where will be happy to discuss it further.
