The Big Spring Clean

Have you checked the volunteer task listings we have for your organisation lately? Potential volunteers who've been hibernating during the cold snap are visiting our volunteering portal and coming into the RVA information shop in droves, ready to look for a new challenge.
It's really important for our advertisers to make sure the new crop of volunteers find up-to-date information about live opportunities. When volunteers follow up roles that are out of date, it not only affects their motivation, but it's going to waste your time too. So invest a little time instead by reviewing any of the roles listed on RGneeds.me for your organisation and get in touch to let us know their status.
Your listings are designed to give potential volunteers the answers to their initial questions. The information provided can make the difference between them getting in touch or looking elsewhere. So if you have changed the training you offer, altered the nature of the role or reviewed your expenses policy then make sure this is reflected in your advert.
We are developing new systems for contacting our individual advertisers for up-dates, but with nearly 300 opportunities listed on this free service, we're relying on them to be proactive too.
