  • The next North Hampshire Volunteers’ Forum takes place on Thursday 27 October, 1 – 3 pm at Hart Voluntary Action, Civic Offices, Harlington Way, Fleet, GU51 4AE. The forum is an opportunity for all managers of volunteers to come together to share information, training and useful tips on recruitment, retention and management of volunteers. Previous forums have included training on DBS checks and use of social media.
    In October, the 3 Volunteer centres from Basingstoke, Hart and Rushmoor will be introducing their new volunteer management system and web platform, “Volunteer North Hampshire”. Since the changes at Do-it in early 2015 there has been an increasing need for a robust and efficient system and we will be delighted to demonstrate and discuss how this will offer a better service both to organisation and to volunteers, as well as helping us reduce inefficient administration tasks and give more time to the sector.

    If you’re interested in coming along and finding out more over a cup of tea – plus the chance to network with other local groups who manage volunteers then please contact Sue on sue@hartvolaction.org.u
