MEETING 6 PRESENTATION (6) PPRE CIC (UK) IVISOC 2013

  1. 1. IVISOC Final meeting: Kilkis Greece 16th -17th May 2013 Presentation from PPRE
  2. 2. What have we learned? The 3 R’s don’t work in isolation: •Successful recruitment involves finding out what motivates people and giving them good information about the organisation / role •Successful retention involves recognising and valuing the contribution that people make & supporting them to grow in the role •Successful organisations recognise this and go the extra mile to ensure that they match the volunteer to the role - and remember to thank them for making a difference
  3. 3. Recognition • Recognition starts at the recruitment phase – skills, motivation – and helps improve retention • It doesn’t have to be formal – people want their contribution to be valued, saying thank you, giving a party or awards for volunteers (eg ‘volunteer of the year’) may be enough • It does have to be tailored to the needs of the individual volunteer and the organisation – volunteering is about reciprocity • Some volunteers may want to volunteer to gain experience or skills to help them find paid work, but that should be specific to their needs, not a general qualification for volunteering.
  4. 4. Say thank you to volunteers is the theme of this year’s volunteers’ week
  5. 5. Next steps for ppre • Add case studies from all partners to the framework, so people can see examples from different countries • Test out the framework with volunteering organisations • Link into volunteers week • Disseminate, disseminate, disseminate - make sure there is a link to the IVISOC website on all key websites for volunteering in England eg: • Volunteer Centre Network • Third Sector European Network • Third Sector Skills • Department of Health • Office for Civil Society
