Where do volunteers go?

Although no one appears to be counting, it’s reasonable to assume that record numbers of people have found their way into some kind of volunteering role during the past six months. That being the case it also seems likely that a good number of these people might be looking to find ways of building on their new found skills and experiences. And therein lies a problem. Who offers that support?  In past years, the Cornwall based Eden Project has run training camps for activists. This year it’s gone online. Not as much fun perhaps but definitely more accessible.

The Eden Project

If you’ve been involved in volunteering or community support over the last few months, you might be looking for new ways to stay connected. If you are, you’ll be excited to know that our friends at Eden Project Communities are taking their Community Camp online! Starting this October, the Community Camp is aimed at anyone wanting to make a difference in their community, and offers practical support to help you get started. Community Camp offers a mix of practical learning activities, workshops and networking opportunities for people from across the UK. It’s entirely free, and run through Zoom. Find out more here!
