Our public services face significant challenges as they seek to deliver more with less; having to cope with increased demand at a time of reduced public spending.

Volunteering and engaging communities can be part of the solution and across the public sector we are seeing a time of change and transition as services are reshaped and re-designed with volunteering in mind.

Join us and a panel of experts to discuss what we can learn about volunteering policy and practice from the public sector.

On the day we will explore:

  • what we can we learn about managing change in volunteering
  • what this tells us about the boundaries of volunteering - are there things volunteers should not and cannot do?
  • how we can take volunteers with us at a time of change and ensure they have a say
  • the challenges of involving volunteers in the public sector and how are they being overcome
  • how these challenges and solutions apply to volunteering in charities and what can we learn to inform our policy and practice.

Who should attend?

Volunteer-involving organisations and volunteer infrastructure bodies from around England.

Who runs it?

The volunteering development unit within NCVO.
