Contribution Through Volunteering Part 2 19th June 2014

This webinar with Jemma Mindham from CSV and Douglas McKelvie from Symmetric Partnership was held on 19th June 2014. A recording of the slide and slides can be downloaded below.

This was the second of a two-part webinar presenting an approach to building community capacity, developed by CSV and In Control over the past three years.  The approach builds upon CSV's supported volunteering model and In Control's work on personalised support planning which promotes the recruitment, training and support of 'disabled' and 'non-disabled' volunteers' for the purposes of mutual support in voluntary work of their choice. It provides positive outcomes for individuals, communities and in terms of system efficiencies.

The first session held on the 22nd May concentrated o the model and learning to date. A recording of this can be viewed here.

This second session presents the business model which has been developed by CSV, In Control, Symmetric Partnership and Essex County Council. It shows how cost and capacity can be assessed using the methodology of sytem dynamics. When applied to vounteering programmes such as these it allows commissioners and delivery organisations to accurately reflect inputs and outputs and determine cost, capacity and financial benefits.

This recording  will be of interest to commissioners in health and social care; directors of public health; voluntary and community sector managers; and to citizens, particularly those who are active volunteers.
