Introduction to Volunteering
The Exchange, 33 Gawber Road, Barnsley S75 2AH
This workshop is designed to give you an insight into the role of an NHS volunteer within a Recovery College setting. It is ideally suited for people who are thinking of volunteering or for newly recruited volunteers who are stepping up into this responsible position.
The workshop covers the following areas of practice:
- Your motivations for volunteering?
- An outline of our volunteer offer at “The Exchange”
- To discuss whether your volunteer aspirations meet our own – are we a good match?
- To explore what is: professional and ethical practice?
By exploring these areas it is hoped that you will be able to reflect on whether you are ready for volunteering in terms of: your own wellbeing, able to take on the responsibility of this important role and share a willingness to empower learners to meet their own goals.
