Cumbria CVS Volunteer Portal




Cumbria CVS Volunteer Portal basic run-through session for organisations.

This in-person session is for any local organisation that would find it helpful to see a live demonstration of how to register on the Cumbria CVS Volunteer Portal and how to add on your volunteer opportunities. You will also be shown how to create a printable flyer of your opportunities from the Portal, how to share on social media and how to invite your existing volunteers onto the portal.
