Volunteer Organisers Forum

The Volunteer Organisers Forum is for voluntary groups and not-for-profit organisations, including statutory, who involve volunteers in their work.

The next Southend Volunteer Organisers Forum here at SAVS is on Thursday 23rd March 2017 from 9.45 am – 12.00pm at the SAVS Centre, 29 – 31 Alexandra Street, Southend-on-Sea, Essex SS1 1BW.


The Volunteer Organisers Forum is an opportunity for Organisations and groups that involve volunteers to get together, network and learn from each other by raising issues and concerns around volunteering. It is a chance for groups to improve their volunteering ‘best practice’ and to keep up to date with volunteering protocol. 
There will also be chance to listen to an informative presentation by our guest speaker, Joanne Dear from HARP on "From Volunteer to Volunteer Manager: The trials and tribulations!" 
It is an informal forum for volunteer managers to share what works with volunteers and what doesn't with like-minded organisations. We have a different 'best practice' theme and speaker each time. This is a great opportunity to link with like-minded organisations.   If you have a topic or subject you would like us to cover in the forum, please let us know.


The invitation is extended to all not for profit, statutory, voluntary and charitable organisations in Southend.

We look forward to seeing you there.
