Helping you find and manage volunteers

If your club, community group, organisation, event or charity needs volunteers – or needs help inspiring, managing or retaining them – then this is the place to be.  Volunteer Glasgow and our partners have a range of services to offer and there are many ways in which we can help.

Over the past year we have developed workshops, resources and events to provide them online so they are accessible to you. Click here for the full list of services for Volunteer Managers with workshop/training dates

Download our Get the Most from Volunteer Glasgow PDF document, which outlines our full range of volunteering services for volunteer involving organisations, referral organisations and individuals that wish to volunteer.

Advertise for free and find the volunteers you need

It’s now even easier to give us volunteer role/opportunity details so that we can advertise them free of charge . With approx 100,000 online opportunity searches every year, plus 1,000s of people phoning, emailing or dropping in to find out where they can do some voluntary work, you can’t afford not to use the FREE registration/advertising service.

Managing volunteers effectively

Online resources and contacts for further help – there are plenty of excellent information sheets, guides, tool kits, sample policies and documents available to download to help you with managing volunteers; and we’ve listed contact details for other useful guides that can be ordered. How volunteer friendly are you really? Use the process of signing up for the national Volunteer Friendly Award to review just how good you are; find out more about the gold standard Investing in Volunteers award; if you’re from a sports club, are you good enough for the Clubmark award?  And if you’re running a youth group/club you might want to try the ‘Raising your Game‘tool kit. Support, Networking and Training – managing/co-ordinating volunteers can often be a crucial but isolated role: we provide 1-2-1 assistance for people in Glasgow; you can subscribe and contribute to our regular email bulletins and blogs; we facilitate networking and action-planning events; and we provide programmed and bespoke training workshops. Evaluation, Impact & Policy – what difference does volunteering make to your group, club or organisation?  And your members, the people and communities you serve?  How can you prove it, evidence it, and make a better case for resourcing it?

Time Credits: galvanise, organise and deliver

We’ve published a research and consultation report with recommendations on how the mechanism of ‘timebanking’ can reshape how Glasgow cares for our older people. It reviews the health benefits, the economic case, and has recommended how further Change Fund investment can provide a mechanism for addressing one of the most pressing issues facing Glasgow.
