The Volunteer management and engagement webinar took place on Wednesday 30th of May. During the webinar we heard from three established health partnerships and THET on their volunteer management and engagement practices and processes. In addition to that an RCPCH volunteer shared her experience on what it’s like to volunteer in a low resource setting through a health partnership. Unfortunately due to technical issues the webinar did not record, however please find below all the presentations from the speakers and some volunteer resources that THET have put together.
