Connecting Volunteering is a forum for third sector representatives who are involved in managing and supervising volunteers to discuss topics of common interest, share knowledge and experience, as well as looking at local and national priorities associated with volunteering.
The forum will provide a stronger voice and greater representation on relevant issues with statutory agencies, through engaging in participative consultation.
We want to hear from you! We’ve launched an online survey to gather your feedback, and ensure the Falkirk third sector forums are relevant and useful to our sector.
We’re looking to hear from all members of the sector, particularly those who have attended forums before, on what you would like to achieve and learn from them. The survey should only take 5 minutes to complete, and is open until 11:59pm on Sunday 31st March.
To submit your response, please visit the SurveyMonkey page.
If you have any questions regarding this survey, or any of the forums, please contact Scott Malcolm by email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Online Discussion Boards
Alongside the 4 forum meetings a year, we now facilitate an Online Discussion Board to support the work of the forum. The purpose of this discussion board is to allow colleagues to share information, raise issues and ask questions between the quarterly meetings. These discussions will be used to help to influence the agendas of upcoming meetings, with outcomes of conversations being fed back to the discussion boards. You can access the discussion board for this forum by clicking on the following link: Connecting Volunteering Online Discussion Board.
The Online Discussion Boards are publicly accessible, but you will need to register, and be logged in to be able to contribute to the discussions.
The forum continues to support “virtual” membership through the Online Discussion Boards. We realise it is not always possible to attend a meeting in person. As a virtual member of the forum you will have the opportunity to access the agendas and minutes of meetings through this page, engage with other forum members and take part in the discussion boards, raise issues and influence the work of the forum.
We hope you enjoy using the online discussion boards. If you do have any queries, or have any issues accessing or using the discussion boards, please contact Laura Jamieson by phone: 01324 692003, or email: email@example.com
