Experts in Evaluation Training- Tools to Measure your Volunteer Programm

What difference do your volunteers make to your group or organisation and to the people and communities you serve? How can you prove it, evidence it, and make a stronger case for funding your volunteer programme?

In a time of cuts, there are increasing pressures on organisations that involve volunteers to monitor and evaluate the contribution they make. This training will provide you with effective methods for evaluating your volunteering programme and proving its value and impact.

This includes:

• How volunteers help the organisation to achieve its mission and service its target communities
• How volunteers themselves benefit from that experience
• How this benefits the wider community

Please get in touch with expression of interest- and we will be sure to contact you with future dates and venues.

Promoting Healthy Lifestyles and Mental & Emotional Wellbeing

This bespoke training programme was originally written for Wandsworth Borough Council’s workplace development; Lifetimes have negotiated for voluntary sector groups in Wandsworth and Richmond to have the opportunity to take up free training spaces which will benefit and strengthen bids and contracts in the future. 

Lifetimes Healthy Communities Training consists of two different courses; Promoting Healthy Lifestyles and Mental & Emotional Wellbeing. 

These courses have several aims:  

Promoting Healthy Lifestyles provides an overview of the different areas of health and wellbeing, health inequalities and how to promote healthy living activities in the community.

Mental &Emotional Wellbeing offers an overview of the different aspects that support good mental wellbeing and how to support individuals to engage in health promoting activities and access further support. 

For more information, course dates and times please go to this link Mental and emotional Well-being 

The courses, so far, have been well attended by Wandsworth Council and voluntary and community sector groups.
