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?

  • Involving volunteers remotely – from staying in touch to remote volunteering
  • Diversifying – bringing in new and different volunteers

Our speakers are:

Rebecca Benson, Volunteer Manager, Birmingham Museums Trust talking about how they developed volunteering practices during 2020, with tips and techniques that you can try.

Martin Baines, Director, Bradford Police Museum talking about their past experiences and new projects to engage and work with a more diverse range of volunteers
