Suffolk Turn Spotlight On The Power Of Volunteering
SUFFOLK’S thriving voluntary and community sector will come together in June for an event to help leaders and contributors gain more knowledge and skill-sharing around the role of volunteers.
Leading experts in the arena of volunteering are due to present at the special occasion, which is being hosted by Community Action Suffolk?
Taking place at Blackbourne Community Centre in Elmswell on Thursday 6th June, the day-long conference will feature talks by Shaun Delaney, Volunteering Development Manager for the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, and Petula Storey, Head of Volunteering at King’s College Hospital NHS Trust.
The event will coincide with National Volunteering Week and is open to leaders and managers at Suffolk’s many voluntary sector organisations.
Volunteering Matters and Active Sport will be running workshops on how they engage the community and what opportunities exist in the region.
Janet Perry, Volunteering Services Officer from Community Action Suffolk, said: “Suffolk Volunteers are supported by an amazing number of volunteer coordinators, leaders and managers and during this conference they can reflect on and share good practice in volunteering, as well as network with colleagues.
“We are looking forward to providing a stage for some really interesting debate and conversation, which will hopefully enhance the way all organisations in the region are better able to attract and engage with volunteers.”
