Training for voluntary and community organisations
We recognise the incredible contribution made by local Voluntary and Community Sector organisations (VCS) in helping people during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
We know that demand on local VCS organisations is increasing and that is having an impact on staffing.
Organisations and individuals are having to adapt and stay ahead of frequent policy changes in a stressful and emotionally challenging environment.
In order to help the sector, the council is supporting VCS organisations with free access to volunteers through our volunteering hub with Volunteer Centre Tower Hamlets.
We continue to signpost the sector towards local, regional, and national grant schemes, which can help organisations in Tower Hamlets with unexpected costs, loss of income, or new projects.
Support around COVID-19 and digital inclusion training is also available through local, regional, and national programmes. These can help organisations in Tower Hamlets build capacity and become more resilient and financially sustainable.
This page outlines some of the training opportunities available for VCS organisations in Tower Hamlets.
Please contact Tower Hamlets Council for Voluntary Service (THCVS) for any advice and support.
THCVS is offering its member organisations high-quality training, workshops, courses, and events coursesto help them grow stronger and more resilient as organisations.
VCTH training: Good practice in volunteer management - COVID-19 and beyond
Date(s) - 28 January 2021
COVID-19 will have impacted your volunteer programme now and will continue to do so in the future.
This practical, interactive, online session will provide an overview of the essential aspects of managing volunteers or coordinating a volunteering programme during the pandemic and beyond.
It is aimed at both staff who are fairly new to managing volunteers (or have not previously had formal training) as well as those who need a refresher.
By the end of the course, you will understand the key principles of good practice in managing volunteers, you will have identified good practice at each key stage of a ‘volunteer journey’ (e.g. enquiring, application, interview, induction, support and supervision, exit) and a lot more.
