Boosting your volunteers

Charity Finance magazine’s Charity Shops Survey 2022 shows that charities have lost tens of thousands of volunteers over the past few years, an issue exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

This comes after the NCVO research on the effects of COVID-19 on the volunteer experience, which we mentioned in a previous insight article

If your impact is helped by the efforts of volunteers, perhaps now is the time to refocus on how to acquire and develop them. I can recommend the DSC’s book ‘The Complete Volunteer Management Handbook’ which, though published just before COVID-19 took hold, contains timeless insights ad recommendations that can help us all to build up our volunteers.

It is available in printed form and as an e-book and you can find out more at
