About this event

Volunteer wellbeing training – A positive volunteer culture leads to positive engagement

While it’s always important for a volunteer manager to support the wellbeing of their volunteers, this role is more vital than ever during an emergency situation. Society and volunteering is changing around us right now. We need to support volunteers to manage stress and encourage them to mind their mental health and wellbeing.

  • We will explore the ways we can provide support for our volunteers and explore some of the new and innovative ways that volunteer involving organisations have supported their volunteers.
  • We will explore the relationship between paid staff and volunteers and how a harmonious relationship between both can help an organisation to achieve its vision.
  • We’ll will also explore real life volunteer management case studies and how good volunteer management practice can impact all parts of your organisation.

Target Audience

This online course is for anyone needing to get a better understanding of how to keep volunteers engaged and provide them with the support them need at challenging times.

Session delivered via Zoom.

About this programme

Recovery and Resilience Training Programme for Non-Profits

Carmichael are running a series of FREE training workshops for charities and non-profits in Ireland in 2022. These workshops are funded by the Community Foundation for Ireland as part of a wider Covid-19 Fund for Recovery. The Community Foundation for Ireland hopes that this funding will strengthen the skills base of the sector around fundraising, digital, governance and leadership, and build resilience among volunteer and staff teams. In turn, the sector will be in a more resilient position as it recovers stronger from Covid-19.

Registration is open to non-profit board members, staff and volunteers of all participating Volunteer Centres and will be on a first come first serve basis.

A maximum of two people from any one Irish non-profit can register per workshop. The training is limited to two workshops per person.
