Volunteer Coordinators Network

North Somerset Volunteers Coordinator Network is a peer support network of
Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise (VCFSE) sector organisations who
recruit or support people in a voluntary or employed capacity.

  • We meet four times a year, to share best practice around a range of volunteering
    themes. Recent topics have included:
  •  Disclosure and Barring Service checks for volunteers
  •  Keeping volunteers engaged, when unable to perform their usual roles during
    the coronavirus pandemic
  •  How volunteering has adapted to the lockdown restrictions
  •  Inclusive recruitment processes, training opportunities
  •  Best practice tool kit
  •  Promoting voluntary opportunities using interesting and engaging techniques
  •  Celebration event planning

Anyone who has direct responsibility for recruiting, supporting or managing
volunteers, or volunteer coordinators in or linked to North Somerset is welcome to
join us.
