Wednesday, 17 Apr: Tautoko Network Meeting
Topic: Managing ‘Volunteer Workers’ in a Health and Safety Context
Presenter: Cheryl Moffat, Coastguard
After ten years managing 14 volunteer Coastguard units with over 290 volunteers, Cheryl Moffat, Coastguard’s Southern Region Manager, has learnt a few practical things about recruiting, inducting, managing, recognising, caring and exiting volunteers. In an age where regular volunteers are seen as ‘volunteer workers’ in a health and safety context, when people have less time to give, it pays to be a great place to volunteer to attract and keep quality volunteers. Cheryl is keen to share her experience and resources and learn from others in an interactive session.
