Have you thought about involving online volunteers in your organisation?
A recent report on volunteering in Britain found that up to 63% of volunteers do at least some of their volunteering online (via the internet from home or elsewhere).
By recruiting online volunteers you can give people new ways to get involved with your work and widen the pool of skills and perspectives you can draw on.
Online volunteers give their time in a wide range of ways. Their tasks might include:
Can you see potential for online volunteers to help you with your work? We are looking for six PAVO member organisations to collaborate in a pilot project starting in the next few months, to help us research how we can best support online volunteering in Powys.
What we need from you
Email flo.greaves(at)pavo.org.uk to register your interest in taking part in the project.
Do you already engage online volunteers? We'd also love to hear from you if you’ve already got volunteers who carry out their tasks for you via the internet, so we can learn about how it’s working already in Powys. Please let us know at flo.greaves(at)pavo.org.uk.
