Moving on from Covid #What are we missing - Volunteers (080721)

 Registration is closed for this event
Sharing Your Volunteering Journey: This event is targeted at grass roots organisations who serve our diverse multicultural communities. Come join in a celebration of community action and meet other community leaders and volunteers making a difference in your community. Hear from some amazing and inspiring community champions. Meet organisations who may be able to support you as you continue on your journey. All welcome, we look forward to meeting you.


Community Action Suffolk and ISCRE have teamed up to offer a series of online (ZOOM) events aimed at people working at grass roots level who support their community.  

This event will give you the opportunity to share your volunteering journey, gain insight into what others do and how you might connect with new people and networks. By volunteering we include any action taken by individuals/groups for free to benefit others, the environment or society. Meet likeminded people and chat with organisations about how to take the next steps on your volunteering journey, including how to come out of the Pandemic and into a new world within volunteering.
