Cardiff and Vale Volunteer Co-ordinators' Network
Are you involved in managing or supporting volunteers? Perhaps you’re a paid worker or volunteer yourself.
The Cardiff and Vale Volunteer Co-ordinators' Network:
- Is run in partnership with Glamorgan Voluntary Services (GVS)
- Meets quarterly and is the forum for Cardiff’s volunteer co-ordinators to discuss ideas or problems relating to volunteering.
- Provides new ideas for including volunteers and for recognising and rewarding their contribution to your organisation.
- Shares best practice and learning on how to support and train colleagues who work with volunteers.
The network is a joint network between Cardiff Third Sector Council and Glamorgan Voluntary Services (GVS). Each quarterly meeting is packed with information, guidance, discussions and networking. It’s also a great way to raise the profile of volunteering in Cardiff.
