Hello I’m Carole from Coventry and a newby
I’ve been involved in numerous community activities and have found lots of ways to get others to engage depending on what the project is.
The difficult bit comes keeping people engaged, I recently launched a community share to save an historic bakery, we used social media as the stating base followed by lots of local events to raise the issue.
Face book page is essential and you need to respond quickly, we ran a few competitions to name the bakery, choose the logo and kept people updated of progress daily. Downside is you can spend all your freetime on line
Welcome to the chat, it’s great to have you.
We’ve got a blog about how to prevent volunteer burnout: http://www.justact.org.uk/2014/04/29/how-do-you-prevent-volunteer-burnout/
Does anyone have any tips on how to keep volunteers engaged?
