We know that the ongoing cost of living crisis has impacted the number of volunteers available in the community. In addition, our feedback to us shows that support for volunteer recruitment is one of the biggest needs for organisations going into the new financial year.

As a result, we are delighted to announce our 2024 Volunteers' Fair taking place on the 1st June 2024. Following your feedback from last year's event, we are delighted that Atria Watford have allowed us to return to hold the fair in the Atrium space (formerly Charter Place!) starting at 9am and running until 3pm!

In addition, this year, we will be encouraging local businesses and employees to attend the Fair to find volunteering opportunities that mightbe suitable for their Corporate or Employer Support Volunteering opportunities. Please think about whether your organisation could incorporate corporate volunteering into your offer and on the registration form, let us know the details.

The link to register for this event is here and places are limited so we would encourage you to sign up as soon as possible. As we are planning to hold an additional fair in Three Rivers later in the year, we will be giving priority to organisations active in Watford to ensure that potential volunteers can find the most suitable opportunities.

If you have any questions, please contact the CVS Team via email or call 07908 209 908.
