County Volunteering Network Meeting




The session will look at how to attract, recruit and support volunteers from BME Groups and Ex-Service personnel into volunteering opportunities. The session will look at what the barriers may be for people who do not have English as their first language or who are ex-services, how you can attract a more diverse range of people to volunteer and what support may be needed.  Useful tips and ideas of encouraging BME Groups or Ex-Services personnel as volunteers into your organisation will be provided.

Come and join us at this bi-annual meeting  – share ideas and best practice, and network with others across Cumbria who manage volunteers.

Registration from 9.45am

Lunch also provided for an informal networking opportunity.

Session facilitated by Judith Smale, County Volunteer Support Officer
