Heritage Volunteering Group Conference 2020

12 June 2020 @ 09:00 - 17:00

£10 – £75

The Heritage Volunteering Group exists to help organisations and volunteer managers unlock the power of volunteering. On 12 June, they will be holding their annual conference at the Whitworth, Manchester.

The event brings together volunteer managers and leaders from across the sector to investigate the issues affecting volunteering today. This year’s conference will explore the role of leading in volunteering.

With speakers including Ruth Ibegbuna, founding CEO of ‘RECLAIM’ and the Roots Programme, and Richard Gough, Director of the Soldiers of Shropshire Museum. Plus, workshops covering strategic thinking to creating more diverse volunteer programmes, if you manage volunteers this is the conference for you.

The event also hosts the Heritage Volunteering Group’s Volunteer Leader of the Year Award, which celebrates outstanding achievements in volunteer management and leadership. Our 2020 award is sponsored by The Churches Conservation Trust with a donated Champing experience for the winner. Those awarded commendations will receive a copy of The Complete Volunteer Management Handbook, by Rob Jackson et al, donated by the Directory of Social Change. Our nomination form can be found here.

  • Early bird: £68.50 (available until Friday 1st May)
  • Standard £75 (available until Friday 22nd May)
