Next webinar: Contribution Through Volunteering Part 2 the business model

19th June 2014


Presenters: Duncan Tree from CSV and Douglas McKelvie from Symmetric Partnership

This is 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 will show 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.

The webinars 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.
