Virtual learning & networking session - Part 5: The volunteer experience and planning for a safe return

Sport Birmingham invites local clubs, organisations and groups to join us to discuss the importance of volunteering and how we can create a safe, welcoming and rewarding environment for existing and prospective volunteers to support the running of sport and physical activity across the city. Whether you rely on volunteers on the field of play or to support behind the scenes, this workshop will explore the practical steps we can all take as we plan for a return as restrictions are eased again.

Virtual learning & networking session - Part 5: The volunteer experience and planning for a safe return

Volunteers have a vital role to play in helping to ensure the safe return for many sports and activities as coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions are eased. This is particularly true of community clubs and groups, who are often entirely dependent on volunteers giving their time so the club or group can deliver sport and activity safely.

The way that people volunteer and the time they have to give is not the same as it used to be. Ensuring a safe and supportive environment to encourage volunteers to re-engage and feel able to give their time in a safe environment will be critical as part of preparing for the return of activity.

It's important to identify the practical steps that can be taken so volunteers feel supported, welcomed, rewarded and most importantly able to volunteer safely if they choose to do so. By the end of this workshop, delegates will be able to:

  • Develop a positive culture of volunteering within a club environment
  • Identify how to develop the volunteer's experience
  • Identify top tips in recruiting, retaining and rewarding volunteers
  • Develop an action plan to improve their club volunteer experience
  • Understand how to access further information to help improve the volunteer experience

The sessions will be over Zoom. Once booked a Zoom link will be sent over via email.
