    The Volunteer Coordinators’ Network meeting provides a space for those who oversee the work of volunteers to seek peer support in a confidential space from others in a similar role. It is an opportunity to share best practise and to learn from the rich experiences of colleagues working across our diverse sector.

    Volunteering has been at the forefront of the response to the Covid-19 outbreak with volunteers taking on key roles in delivering community initiatives to mitigate the impact of the outbreak. From the work that volunteers have undertaken during the vaccine rollout and in support of community testing, it is clear that volunteers will be vital in our post-pandemic recovery.

    This session will provide a forum to share experiences of using volunteers during the outbreak and to explore the challenges and opportunities volunteer-involving organisations may face in the coming 12 months and beyond. We will also explore the role that volunteering itself may play in helping individuals recover and thrive following the health, social and economic impacts of the pandemic.

    Please register online here - further details and joining instructions will be sent in due course.

    Berkshire Vision are a local charity who offer vital practical support and activities to adults and children with visual impairment.

    We are offering a training session on Sight Loss and Eye Health and this is now open to the general public. This takes the form of an informative video by our trustee Jane Veys, who is an optometrist, and an opportunity for comments afterwards.

    The training lasts approximately 45 minutes and is free. Anyone can book onto our sessions by emailing volunteering@berkshirevision.org.uk.

    We look forward to welcoming you.
