Networking Event: Volunteering and Employment
Connected Voice brings together the voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations serving North East England with the third of our Spring 2021 Networking Events.
In accordance with COVID-19 restrictions, we're delivering this event by Zoom.
In advance of Volunteers Week 2021, this time we're focusing on the variety of ways that volunteering opportunities and routes into employment are reflected in the work of the local VCSE. We'll be looking at how these have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions here in the North-East, and the opportunities and challenges for the future.
Introduced by our Chief Executive Lisa Goodwin, and hosted by Connected Voice trustee Paula Park - Director of Finance with Newcastle University Students' Union , we have put together a brilliant range of speakers (full details on the Eventbrite booking page linked below).
- Rob Jackson - thinking differently about volunteering in order to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
- An update from Connected Voice Support and Development about our work to support volunteering, and changes to the Our Gateshead website.
