Training & Events

Our annual Connecting Communities conference is here. It’s a time to bring a range of good practices and thoughts together to talk about volunteering across the county. This year’s theme is Moving Forward and looks at new strategies, ways of using marketing to recruit and the legal side of volunteer management.

On Wednesday, we will be running two training sessions in person in two separate places across the county. Attracting Supporters and Followers will be delivered by Christine from CCVS and Kathryn from Hunts Forums. It brings good practice with practical skills, helping organisations identify and recruit the right people for their organisation.

This training will be run in Fenland at the March Community Centre by the CCVS Development Team. 

What will you learn?

Attracting and recruiting supporters to your organisation is never easy. This in-person training, looks at ways to make your organisation more effective in recruiting supporters and followers.

We are running the same training at two venues on 15th June (March and Huntingdon) to enable people to choose the venue most convenient for them. This workshop is taking place in March.

At each session, there will also be the opportunity to network over a light lunch with other community groups and members of the Support Cambridgeshire team.

Training Outcomes:

    • A better understanding of how to identify potential supporters
