A reminder that the East Sussex Volunteer Coordinator Networking Forums run locally and are open to anyone who has responsibility for involving and engaging volunteers anywhere in East Sussex.
We are always looking for guest speakers at future Forum sessions. If you would like the opportunity to get up and share with us a bit more about what you do and how your service involves volunteers, then please contact Tanya.
Attendance at all the Forums is currently free but there are limited places and demand for places is usually high, so to be sure of your place, please book early.
