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.
The AVSM annual conference brings together hospice volunteer managers from across the country. Each year we travel to a different city to host a two-day conference full of key-note speakers, workshops, seminars and plenty of opportunities to network and share knowledge. Due to the current pandemic restrictions we are taking our conference online on the 16th March 2021. Find out more here
These take place across the country and are an opportunity for members to visit other hospices, meet other Voluntary Service Managers and share ideas. See our ‘Regions’ page to find your local region. Currently we have taken these online using Zoom calls to support members remotely due to current meeting restrictions.
