Volunteer Managers Network

The Trafford Volunteer Managers Network gives individuals managing volunteers within their VCFSE group/organisation the opportunity to meet others from across Trafford in similar roles.

The network seeks to share best practice and information amongst volunteer managers and coordinators from all sectors across Trafford, and to offer peer support with raising the profile of volunteering, recruiting volunteers, identifying funding and training opportunities and encouraging joint working.

Meetings are open to anybody in Trafford that are responsible for volunteers or volunteering in their group or organisation.
