I provide a range of support to volunteer involving organisations and individual leaders & managers of volunteers, including delivery of ILM qualifications in the Management of Volunteers, through Excellence in Volunteer Management. I am passionate about raising the profile of the profession and committed to developing Volunteer Managers to realise their potential, and I co-ordinate the weekly tweet chat especially for Volunteer Managers - Thoughtful Thursdays #ttvolmgrs as part of the @vmmovement group.
Over the years, my volunteering roles have ranged from youth club committee member to dance teacher; activity organiser to overseas language tutor. I also trained as a volunteer Learning Advisor with VE's Learning Loops programme and I am regularly involved with a local Home Educators' network. During 2012 I had the privilege of taking on the role of Training Designs Editor with the on-line journal e-volunteerism
