Restarting your volunteer program in the COVID-19 World

Join us for an informative online workshop to be facilitated by Volunteering Victoria’s Sara Sterling.

This workshop looks at the current COVID-19 situation, and the unique considerations that volunteer involving organisations have to weigh up to begin delivering their volunteer programs in a safe manner. Volunteering Victoria has created a seven-step process to ensuring programs restart their volunteer programs in the right way.

This workshop will provide community groups and organisations with information and practical tools to help:

  • Understand the impacts to the sector that COVID-19 has had on volunteer involvement
  • Identify their Occupational Health and Safety obligations to volunteers
  • Begin planning to reopen their volunteer programs using Volunteering Victoria’s seven-step framework for restarting volunteer programs amidst COVID-19
