Raising Awareness

Part of our role is to raise the profile of volunteering in the area. We are out and about in local communities, generating awareness and enthusiasm about the huge range of ways to get involved.

Guideline about how we use your information

Generally, we give people information about your organisation to take away with them. If they are interested, they will contact you directly. Sometimes, we will make enquiries on a volunteers's behalf, but we do not recommend particular volunteers or take up references. It is your responsibility to make sure that the volunteers you recruit are suitable.

Promotional Opportunities

Opportunities are promoted in a variety of ways; through outreach, volunteer support sessions, Volunteer Connect Devon, social media and promotional events.
