Volunteer Managers Network

Volunteer Managers Network

From 1 May 2020 HARCVS will undergo a major change as it restructures to concentrate on the provision of services for older and vulnerable people delivered across the District under the umbrella of the Harrogate Easier Living Project. The changes are necessary to secure the future of the charity and follow a challenging three years after the changes to the way in which NYCC and the NHS fund the provision of support for charities and community groups in North Yorkshire in 2017.

We are now known as Harrogate & District Community Action (HADCA). Unfortunately we will no longer be able to run the long established programme of forums and network meetings, including the Harrogate District Volunteer Managers’ Network.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Network over many years.

Keeping in touch 

HADCA produces a bi-monthly email update for Volunteer Managers containing information about our Volunteering Directory, local events, national awareness days and useful guidance and resources. Sign up for our mailing list here.

Background to the Group

The Network met quarterly and was open to anyone who has a role in recruiting and managing volunteers. The meetings were FREE for organisations and groups operating in the Harrogate District and meetings were held at community venues across the District. Meetings were usually informal and focused on a topic of interest suggested by one or two members followed by a general discussion, with HADCA organising speakers where appropriate. Topics have included 'DBS checks';'Getting your Voice Heard in the Media' and 'Involving Student Volunteers'.
