Join us on 21 November 2 -3.30 to discuss where the disciplines of involvement and volunteer management can learn from each other.

The Shared Learning Group on Involvement and Association of Volunteer Managers are hosting an interactive discussion, to explore the similarities and differences between our roles, and the skills needed for each. There is a lot of synergy and overlap between involvement and volunteering: often the same individuals are involved in supporting both forms of activities and the boundaries between these are becoming blurred.

This event will be facilitated by Jurgen Grotz, Director of Institute for Volunteering Research and author of Patient and Public Involvement in Health and Social Care Research.

Sam Ward, Participation and Involvement Lead at Parkinson’s UK will share her reflections on what Involvement and Volunteer Management have in common. There will be a chance to join a facilitated breakout group to explore some of the key issues which are currently facing both professions:

  • Promoting diversity and inclusion
  • Influencing upwards
  • Capturing and communicating impact

We’re inviting you to join us to share your experiences and learn from colleagues, with a view to creating links across the professions and developing shared responses informed by different perspectives.

This event will be held via Zoom and there are 20 places available. To register, please select the appropriate ticket. Only 1 ticket type per organisation please. Where there are 2 tickets of the same type are selected AVM reserve the right to cancel one of them.
