To enable the successful employment of volunteers by not-for-profit organisations, and promote the benefits of volunteering to people and communities.
Can you us about your team?
Richard is our Strategy and Finance Director, and he loves co-managing the centre with Glenda. He's passionate about making people more aware of what volunteering can do, and making everyone welcome to volunteer and feel included.
Glenda joined Volunteering Canterbury in 2012 as the Outreach and Marketing Manager. Glenda speaks to groups about volunteering – making new connections, gaining new skills, enhancing CVs; and also to organisations about the management of volunteers.
