For many organisations engaging volunteers from home and managing volunteers remotely is a new approach that has been brought into sharp focus as we adapted to COVID-19 restrictions over the last few years.
It is a sustainable and diverse way to involve volunteers in your organisation, and may become a welcome long-term addition to your programme.
Our #VolunteerFromHome campaign helps volunteers find opportunities they can do from home and supports organisations to engage their volunteers remotely.
We have created a range of resources to support organisations who are looking to redeploy their current volunteers, and those that are developing totally new roles that can be done from home.
In this short video, we take a look at one form of volunteering from home – Virtual Volunteering. While virtual volunteering has been around for a long time, the recent pandemic made many volunteer involving organisations consider it for the first time. This 10 minute video will bring you through some of the essentials you need to consider in relation to virtual volunteering.
