Managing Volunteers in Sport
It has been suggested that the management of volunteers is one of, if not the, biggest factor affecting the retention rates of volunteers in sport. This coupled with today’s busier lifestyles and greater competition for volunteers means that effective management is essential for the retention and recruitment of volunteers within your organisation.
If an organisation is to meet the needs and expectations of the modern sports volunteer then they must have a volunteer programme that is; competent and creative in structure, whilst also providing flexibility and support for its volunteers, in a friendly environment.
We understand the importance of effective volunteer management, we also understand that sometimes a helping hand is needed to achieve this. So we have developed a handbook and training workshop all focused on developing your club/organisations volunteer management programme.
To access our 'Practical Guide to Effective Volunteer Management' then you will need to attend one of our training workshops, use the search tool to the right of the screen to find your nearest one. To get you started we have provided some useful templates and example documents that you might find of use.
