GL Communities's Story
Sue Cunningham tells us about her organisation's experience of recruiting volunteers through Go Volunteer Glos
Go Volunteer Glos was founded by the Gloucestershire Volunteering Collaborative. The Collaborative is a group of representatives from the local Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector, health, local government, employers and employees, police, and fire services, along with volunteers themselves, working together strategically to improve the way volunteering works in the county.
We listened to thousands of local people and organisations during 2020/21, many of whom told us there was a need to bring together all the rich diversity of volunteering opportunities available across our county into a single, easily accessible online home. So, we have created Go Volunteer Glos as our first step in making Gloucestershire the best place in the country to volunteer.
We are delighted that the Gloucestershire VCS Alliance has kindly agreed to host Go Volunteer Glos for us, managing it on a day-to-day basis.
THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS
Whilst best endeavours are made to check the validity of organisations who post volunteering opportunities on Go Volunteer Glos, the responsibility for any incident (including any safeguarding incident) that may occur at any time between any such organisation and any volunteer or potential volunteer lies with the recruiting organisation
