We offer one-to-one support to voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises to help develop good practice in working with volunteers. Book through EventBrite.

Our aim is to:

  • Improve your organisation's capacity to recruit and retain volunteers
  • Provide a better experience for volunteers
  • An opportunity to review current practices
  • Become familiar with the Investing in Volunteers quality standard
  • Demonstrate to funders that you have the necessary systems in place to ensure good volunteer management

London Volunteering Management Charter

The Volunteer Centre Croydon has signed up to the London Volunteering Management Charter. We are encouraging all organisations that involve volunteers to sign up to this too. The charter demonstrates your commitment to providing high quality volunteering opportunities and allows you to access even more support. 

Volunteer Manager's Forum: 27 April 2017

This is an opportunity for all those who recruit and support volunteers to share experiences and ideas about how to develop and manage volunteer programmes. At this meeting we’ll focus on reward and recognition. We’ll discuss how to say thank you without changing the relationship between your organisation and your volunteers or straying into obligations or contracts. We can also talk about expenses.

The meeting will take place at Team Croydon Volunteer Shop, Centrale Shopping Centre, CR0 2TY from 1.30 - 3.30pm.  It is a free event but please book via eventbrite.
