At the end of January Portsmouth’s Volunteering Hub (Portsmouth Together) will be holding a Volunteering Fair across three days at the Tesco Extra in Fratton Way. This will be a fantastic opportunity to recruit local volunteers to your school. Over the last year we have worked with Portsmouth Together to recruit over 20 new governors, and we can also use the event to promote other opportunities e.g. listening to children read. There is no obligation to accept all volunteers – an informal interview and/or trial period can be part of the agreement, and volunteers would be expected to undertake a DBS check where appropriate.
To promote a volunteering opportunity at your school please provide brief information on:
- The role – what you are looking for the volunteer to do
- When they will be needed – e.g. weekly, monthly, and also if there is a regular day of the week/ time of day you need someone
- Any specific skills and experience you are looking for, or that no specific skills are required
Please can you send this to [email protected] so that I can get the responses collated into an information sheet for distribution at the event.
