We at FVAF are delighted to present the first of our monthly newsletters which will aim to keep our stakeholders both informed and involved with the service we deliver throughout the Forest of Dean.
As the Volunteer Centre for the Forest of Dean we support volunteering that involves individuals, voluntary and community groups and organisations, public sector bodies and private companies.
The services we provide include:
Advertising voluntary opportunities
Office services such as printing and photocopying
Promoting groups and events within the VCS
- Volunteer Management Training (August TBA) - Marketing Training (September TBA)
- Safeguarding Children (date TBA)
- First Aid (date TBA)
If you would like more information about a course or have a specific training need that is not currently on offer, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org as we may be able to help
We would like to announce the appointment of our new Manager Designate and Development Officer Chris Brown. Chris has an extensive knowledge of the Forest of Dean and has worked within many organisations in the voluntary and community sector. Whilst Chris has already started at FVAF, he will be taking over the reins permanently from Tim Fretter who is sadly leaving us at the end of September. We all wish Chris the best of luck in his new role and look forward to seeing what he will bring to the organisation.
