Are you keen to offer better support to new volunteers? Would your organisation value someone in a peer mentoring role to welcome and encourage new volunteers?

This evening workshop will draw on the experience of the volunteers in the room to explore and learn what outstanding support for new volunteers looks like in a peer mentoring role. Dan Harris the project coordinator for the Norwich Notes project will lead a three hour workshop focusing on creating a safe, encouraging and supportive setting for new volunteers to take their first steps into volunteering.

The course will touch on a number of important topics including an awareness of mental health and supporting those experiencing loneliness and isolation at a time when a number of schemes are looking to place people experiencing loneliness and isolation into volunteering roles.

There will be food available on arrival and a refreshment break during the session

If you're interested in knowing more about the scheme please email Dan on danharris@norwich.gov.uk
