Volunteer South West supports volunteer involving organisations (VIOs) and Volunteer Managers to offer their volunteers the best experience possible through training and advice. We are available to offer assistance through sharing information, a coffee and a chat!
Volunteer Manager Network Gathering
Volunteer South West organises regular meetups for those who coordinate and manage volunteers in their organisations. This might be in the form of a breakfast meeting, after dinner drinks or around a cuppa after a training workshop, where you can meet other like-minded volunteer managers and share ideas, tips and resources. Interested? Please contact Shamara Williams or phone 9791 3214 to find out more.
Training Workshops for your Staff, Board and Volunteers
Volunteer South West runs regular training to help support volunteers in their roles by offering low cost and/ free training opportunities for volunteer managers across the region. Previously we have offered training in volunteer management, roles and responsibilities of board/committee members, grant writing, training for Treasurers and minute taking. We are happy to discuss bringing this training to you. Please contact Shamara Williams or phone on 9791 3214 to discuss further.

Job Service Networks – referrals
VSW can also assist your clients and support them into volunteering roles at our member organisations.
We run a Bridge to Volunteering (B2V) workshop (usually on the first Tuesday of a month), which introduces new volunteers to volunteering – their rights and responsibilities, the benefits of volunteering and what to expect in a volunteer placement. Please encourage your clients to attend one of these. Ring 9791 3214 or contact us to find out more.
