Volunteer Scotland is offering free online courses which aim to encourage you to think about the; volunteer voice, how these learning topics impact on your current situation and discuss the ideas and concepts within your club, group or organisation.

The series of events includes “Keeping Volunteers Safe: Restarting Your Volunteer Programme”, a programme which addresses the essential things you need to consider to ensure a positive experience for individuals returning to engage in volunteering following suspension of programmes in response to Covid-19.

The overall aim is to help you prepare your volunteers, organisation and colleagues to return to supporting volunteer involvement in your work.

It was developed with input from volunteers, volunteer-involving groups and organisations, volunteer practitioners and trainers. This input has given us the volunteers’ perspective and the volunteers’ ‘voice’ that we hope you will find helpful throughout the course.

You can look at the course objectives on the Open University portal.
