Join us for the next eden project Communities camp. An experience designed for people who want to make good things happen where they live.
This camp is for beginner volunteers and people who have ideas they have not had the courage to take action on yet.
We recognise that the job of leading and managing volunteers can be challenging. It’s frequently an isolating role, with practitioners often getting little support from within their organisations. COVID-19 has added to these challenges, with stress and anxiety more common.
To celebrate Shelter NI’s 40th anniversary this year, we are hosting an online panel discussion with the Imagine Belfast Festival of Politics and Ideas on common misconceptions of homelessness, what issues homeless organisations are facing during this time, how they are planning to continue to provide support for homeless people, and most importantly – what you can do to help!
Speaking at the event will be a panel of experienced professionals, from managers of homeless support networks in the UK to those working on the frontlines. If you’d like to find out more, there will be a chance to submit questions at the end in an interactive live format.
Eden Project Communities and Volunteer Now invite you to pop in and power up at the open shop, opposite Primark Ballymena Tower centre 18 – 24 October.
Community minded workers and volunteers can pop in to receive a little thanks and an energy boost plus
Volunteer Now has launched a new online campaign #HelpEachOther to support those who wish to volunteer for COVID-19 related opportunities and for organisations which require the support of volunteers to deliver their services to those who need it most.
