Volunteer Bureau - Shropshire RCC (Rural Communities Charity)

Description:

Shropshire RCC (Rural Communities Charity) works in partnership with Oswestry Community Action to provide Outreach Support to people who want to volunteer in Shropshire.

Volunteer brokerage:
through a Shropshire wide outreach service they match people interested in volunteering with opportunities and/or volunteer involving organisations and vise versa.

Marketing volunteering:
they promote general volunteering and community involvement (at events and through general publicity) as well as many specific volunteering opportunities. The main tool they use for this is the volunteering database Do-it.org. Their outreach officers have specific information for individuals wanting to volunteer and a wealth of support for organisations.

Good practice development:
their partners Shropshire RCC and Oswestry Community Action (Qube) together form the Volunteering England’s Shropshire Volunteering Team. They can help advise on good practise and a good start may be the Volunteer Management Toolkit.

Developing volunteering: The Volunteering Team are always on the look out for new ways to develop and promote volunteering. Examples of this are the Youth Volunteering Project and Employer Supported volunteering.

Strategic development of volunteering:
they run six Volunteer Forums, bi-monthly network meetings where volunteers and volunteer involving organisations can share experiences, learn new skills and keep up to date with the latest in volunteering.
