Volunteering was identified as a priority earlier in the year in all three Central Region Action Plans showing that it is something that Clubs value but also need some support in. One of the ways this will be supported is through a monthly story in Central e-news focused on volunteers. These stories will look at different aspects of recruiting, retaining and recognizing volunteers and will offer new ideas and tips to help Clubs grow their volunteer base and support their volunteers.
This month the focus is on local and online resource available to help you better support your volunteers.
