Engaging the Older Volunteer
October 24 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join Age Concern and Volunteer Nelson to learn how to attract and retain the older volunteer and take away practical ideas to adapt to your own organisational needs.
- The shocking fact is that volunteering hours have fallen by 42% **
- By 2031, 26% of the population will be over 65.
- This means that as community organisations we will need to actively engage the older volunteer, who has heaps of experience and knowledge, in order to survive

Come along and join an inspirational morning jam-packed with information and ideas that includes an informal “Ask the Expert” session and a tool-kit of practical information that will help you recruit and retain volunteers 55+
