Anyone who has responsibility for managing volunteers in a palliative care or end of life setting can become a member of AVSM. Membership entitles you to attend regional meetings, training events and our annual conference. It also gives you access to a wealth of good practice information and a national forum – putting you in touch with colleagues from around the country.
Our annual conference brings together hospice volunteer managers from across the country. Our 2016 event took place in Edinburgh in November and was our most successful yet. With a range of guest speakers and workshops focusing on hospice volunteering, it’s the only national event of its kind. We are currently looking forward to our 2017 conference in Bristol on the 2nd & 3rd November.
These take place across the country and are an opportunity for members to visit other hospices, meet other Voluntary Service Managers and share ideas.
