• The training session will give voluntary arts groups the necessary skills/experience to recruit, retain and support volunteers. 
• Toolkit is a 'how to guide' to improve groups volunteer management skill base and current levels of support.

Small to medium voluntary arts and craft groups.

The training workshop aims to provide small to medium voluntary arts groups with specialist advice/guidance support in improving and strengthening their current volunteer management support systems.

It is an informal session to discuss volunteering in the round and what processes need to be in place to recruit/retain volunteers. Groups will have a chance to talk about their volunteer programmes and current skill gaps or worries/concerns.

Arts groups in general don't see themselves as third sector organisations so don't always link into localised support. Workshop aims to hook groups into local networks of support including the volunteer centre.

Groups will also work through a self assessment review - so they can identify current strengths/weaknesses with their current volunteer programme. You will have an opportunity to learn more about the work of Voluntary Arts: Running Your Group – e learning materials, Epic Awards, Voluntary Arts Week, Up for Arts.
