23rd November 2017 – The Stockton Volunteering Partnership
Ever wanted to play judge and jury? At this Stockton Volunteering Partnership Karen Milburn from Skillshare will help us look at the common misconceptions around volunteering and the law, and encouraging you to be the jury looking at examples of recent cases that have come before the court. You might be surprised at the outcomes!
Afterwards, we’ll be hearing from Jane Dunn and Stacy Porter, “Experience Durham” Staff Volunteering Officers, who will be talking about social action, and how the VCSE can encourage better corporate social participation from the private sector. Bring your ideas for social action projects – let’s get thinking outside the box.
As always there will be a tasty networking lunch from 12:00 – 13:00.
This session follows on from our last partnership meeting where we shared good practice for recruitment and retention of volunteers, and a future Kitemark for Stockton, which you can read about here.
