Meeting quarterly throughout the year, Bridgend County Borough Volunteer Managers’ Forum is for workers of voluntary groups and local agencies.

The forum defines volunteer workers as those that support volunteers in their voluntary group or those that identify as providing information on volunteer opportunities within their group, on a paid or voluntary basis.

Inviting key speaker to attend, the forum derives its membership from both local voluntary organisations and regional or national voluntary organisations that are active, or intending to be active in the Bridgend County Borough area. The Forum invites key speakers to attend.

Aims of the forum are:

  • To promote awareness and understanding of volunteering related issues;
  • To improve networking and co-operation between local voluntary organisations and agencies;
  • To share good practice;
  • To provide a county wide support network for volunteer workers.

The Volunteer Forum gives people working and developing a volunteer programme an opportunity to share ideas, network and provide mutual support.  It is also seen as an opportunity for organisations to highlight any new or existing developments.
