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.

We are very pleased to welcome the British Red Cross Mobility Aids Service for Fleet and Aldershot to the Hart Volunteer Centre Hub on the 1st Floor of Hart Shopping Centre.
Last year they loaned out 200 pieces of equipment to local residents. The service provides short-term (up to 3 months) loans of wheel chairs and other independent living aids for people with a disability or who are recovering from surgery or an illness. There is no charge for this service although a donation is always welcomed. Returning loaned equipment is also easy. The volunteers are available for you to collect your loans and talk you through how to use your equipment each weekday morning from 10.00-12.00.
So please call 01252 810774 for more information, search for Mobility Aids at www.redcross.org.uk or view this video for more information.
