Do you need to attract more volunteers or ensure that you are following good practice?

We offer 1-2-1 support and run quarterly Volunteer Managers’Forums to deliver training and peer support to enable organisations to use best practice to recruit, manage and develop your volunteers. This support is available to all our member organisations in Lewisham and becoming a member is free.

You can also advertise your role through our website and bulletin.

For more information please contact Aparna on volunteering@valewisham.org.uk or call 020 3778 0664.
