Do a Bit and achieve a lot!

  1. 1. The Volunteer Centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Open Badges Training Author: Patrick McGee ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 1
  2. 2. Overview of the Do a Bit Project The Do a bit project has been developed to create entry-level or bite-sized volunteering opportunities in the Blackpool area. The Volunteer Centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde was selected to receive financial support from the £10m Innovation in Giving fund, run by NESTA and funded by the Cabinet Office. ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 2

  4. 4. The Benefits of micro-volunteering Increased activity of Volunteers More attractive Simple to implement ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 4
  5. 5. Change in thinking It is not a change in your need for core Volunteers to help your organisation. It is a way of introducing new volunteers to your organisation. Volunteers will have less responsibility and duties so might be encouraged to stay longer. ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 5
  6. 6. Breakdown the system If you need one volunteer to do multiple tasks. Why not look at the task and break it down into smaller chunks? Each of these chunks will become ‘Do a Bit’ ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 6
  7. 7. Proof is in the pudding To prove the potential of ‘Do a Bit’ I am putting together a small team of guys who will become a ‘Volunteer SOS’ team We will visit participating ‘Do a Bit’ registered VIO’s and they will help you ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 7
  8. 8. Larger benefits! Get your opportunities broadcast across social media, sms messaging, email newsletters to over 2,000 Volunteers who are willing and eager to volunteer. Just change your thinking in how you want people to help you achieve your goals. ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 8
  9. 9. Sign up to the Do a Bit programme Do a Bit! Achieve a lot! ©The Volunteer centre Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde 9
