Volunteer Development Network

Volunteering Services facilitates the development of good practice in volunteering through learning from the many organisations we work with. The Volunteer Development Network (VDN) (previously known as the Bolton Volunteer Co-ordinators' Forum) is chaired by Keith Harris from Bolton FM radio station.  It is a great place to stay updated and share good practice with peers involved in managing and supporting volunteers.  Attending the VDN is also a great way of evidencing your groups commitment to upholding good practice around volunteering if you have signed up to the Bolton Volunteer Charter! 

Laurent Fernandez from Bolton Carers Support had this to say following attending the December 2018 meeting;

‘Thanks to Lauren and Bolton CVS.  If you are involved in volunteering in Bolton, come along! I always leave motivated and full of new ideas.'

If you would like to be added to our VDN mailing list, please contact the friendly Volunteering Services team on 01204 546060 or email Shahenaz via shahenaz@boltoncvs.org.uk
