New Volunteering Wales digital platform from 8 June 2018
The new platform is free for volunteers and for organisations looking to recruit. As before you can find opportunities by searching for keywords or according to distance from your location. However, volunteers can now also log the hours and skills they gain through volunteering and will receive digital badges for volunteering 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1,000 hours.
Registration is straightforward, and the website will remind volunteers of forthcoming commitments as well as being a record of what they have achieved, particularly useful for updating the CV!
WCVA Chief Executive Ruth Marks said: ‘There’s great potential for volunteering to have an even bigger impact on people’s wellbeing in Wales with more people volunteering for the causes they feel passionate about. This new platform will help make that possible and allow volunteers to get the most out of the contributions they make.’
For organisations working with volunteers the new system will help you to recruit and manage volunteers, log volunteer hours, plan rotas and events, record training and experience and produce reports.
