Let’s Get The Whole Family Volunteering – A Toolkit

This toolkit has been designed to give volunteer involving organisations guidance for involving families in volunteering and social action opportunities. It has been made possible through our Sport England funded project – Families Together which is focused on supporting our members to engage families in volunteering activities that encourage physical activity.

NEW toolkit – Reward and recognition

We encourage all volunteer involving organisations to recognise the contributions that
volunteers make to their organisation and to the wider community.

This toolkit, devised with support from Cheshire West and Cheshire Council, has top tips and downloads to help you show recognition to your volunteers.  Click on the image for the full version.

If that’s not enough then listen and get inspired by this Volunteering Song. The production of this special song began at the Love to Give Volunteer Celebration – hosted by Cheshire West and Chester Council in 2018.  Volunteers, during a workshop, began shaping the song, which was then completed by Claire Mooney using words taken from Cheshire West Voluntary Action’s Annual Awards entries.
