Planning in Uncertain Times
In the past year, we have begun to inhabit an uncertain and constantly changing landscape. We may feel inclined to delay or avoid planning until the way ahead becomes clearer, but with funding and other opportunities on offer, planning remains essential.
Join us to think about why planning is vital in uncertain times, and how to approach it.
Developing your Volunteer Practices
We’ll look at ways of staying in touch with volunteers, maintaining volunteer involvement during Covid restrictions, and diversifying volunteers.
How can we use this time to develop our relationship with volunteers and develop the range of volunteers we work with?
