Volunteer retention

30 Apr 2018 - 14:05 by hayley.lightfoot

I attended some interesting training last week looking at new approaches and perspectives around volunteer retention.

There were seven key things that were identified as being important to do in order to engage with a volunteer (and hopefully retain them):

Be flexible
Eg: Have more than one volunteering role. Make it easier for people to come back and volunteer again if they have to take some time out.

Focus on meaning and impact
