Next webinar: Contribution Through Volunteering

21st May 2014 and further date in June (tbc)


Presenters: Andrew Tyson, In Control, Jemma Mindham, CSV, Douglas McKelvie, Symmetric Partnership

These webinars will present 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.  The approach 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 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.

This is a two part webinar.  The first part will concentrate on the model and learning to date.  The second part will present an approach to assessing cost and capacity using the methodology of system dynamics.
