This is the second meeting of Connected Voice and Volunteer Centre Newcastle‘s new Volunteer Coordinator/Managers’ network.

After the great input from colleagues at the first meeting in April we will be setting the theme for this meeting as “Inclusion“. The network meeting will centre discussions on how we can make sure everyone is included in our volunteer activity and how we can collectively work to break down some of the barriers to volunteering that exist. We will be sharing best practise, bringing our challenges and concerns and hearing from industry experts on some of the key issues that were raised in April.

As requested in the first meeting, there will be more time dedicated at the start and the end of this session for colleagues to network with each other. Tea, coffee, water, fruit and biscuits will be provided, please do feel free to bring your lunch a long with you to have while we network at the start, or buy lunch from One Strawberry Lane’s Café Deli.

Spaces are limited to 30 due to the capacity of the room, please send Nimerta an email if this meeting is fully booked and you would like to be added to the waiting list: nimerta.virdee@connectedvoice.org.uk

Venue: Multifunction Room 2A, Ground Floor, One Strawberry Lane, NE1 4BX 

Our training and events are funded from a variety of sources, allowing us to offer them for free to eligible organisations. Please check the eligibility requirements for each session before signing up, as this varies from course to course. If your organisation is not eligible for a free session you may be interested in one of our tailored training packages.

You can keep up to date with the latest training and events from Connected Voice by subscribing to our fortnightly email bulletin.

Attendance and value Our team have dedicated significant time and resource to create and deliver our excellent range of training and events. Connected Voice is funded for this work, allowing us to offer these events free of charge. However, we expect people who have registered to prioritise attendance and let us know as soon as possible if there is a barrier to attending. We may follow up with you if you are absent without letting us know.

Delivery method This session is designed as an in-person event, held at One Strawberry Lane, NE1 4BX (an accessible building).

Accessibility Please let us know in advance if you have any accessibility requirements that would help you get the most out of this session. We will do everything we can to accommodate them. We can provide a BSL interpreter for training and events on request, but ask you to give us enough advance notice to enable this to be organised. To maximise resources, we are unable to provide BSL interpreters for all sessions unless we know this is essential.

Evaluation This event is free to attend but all participants will be required to complete a short evaluation on completion. This feedback enables us to continue delivering a free programme of training and events.

For security and practical reasons: You can only book one place for yourself. If a colleague wants to attend, they will need to book separately themselves. You must give us all the essential information requested so that we know your registration is genuine.

If circumstances change, you must advise us as soon as possible so that the place isn’t wasted as we have limited spaces for each event. You must also advise us if a substitute person from your organisation is attending in your place. We will be monitoring non-attendance, and may not accept future bookings from regular non-attenders.
