Surprising ways volunteers can help your organisation thrive in 2020 | Recording now available

Thank you to everyone who attended August’s Tea and Buns Community of Practice.

A special thank you to Michelle Stafford from Volunteering Queensland for chatting with Dr Ruth Knight on a range of topics including:

  • How has volunteering changed during COVID-19, and is it still an important strategy for organisations
  • How has COVID-19 changed the way organisations engage and support volunteers
  • How have volunteering programs been really creative and innovative
  • Should organisations measure and report on the outcomes of their volunteer program
  • What should volunteer coordinators be doing when their organisation is going through change

You can access the free video recording now via our YouTube channel:
