In the event of a disaster or emergency volunteers are often needed to provide practical and emotional support as they aid victims, support the delivery of government/public services and help rebuild communities. Volunteer management is key to achieving the effective involvement of volunteers. So what does good volunteer management in a crisis look like? What has happened in relation to volunteering and COVID-19? Join Denise Hayward, CEO of Volunteer Now in Northern Ireland, and Sarah Henderson, Resilience Advisor for Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), as they share a wealth of information and experience on how to involve volunteers in emergency situations, delivering effective volunteer management in a crisis. Session moderated by Mei Cobb, Senior Director, Volunteer Engagement at United Way Worldwide.
