This workshop is for volunteers, though volunteer managers or coordinators (or the general public!) are also encouraged to attend. Professional boundaries are the limits that help us to develop effective relationships in the workplace, whether this is a volunteer role or a professional role. They are established through a set of behaviours and are given meaning through personal attitude and experience. If these boundaries are not clearly defined, owned and maintained, there is likely to be confusion and damage to the relationship with either, or both, parties being put at risk.
Volunteer South is supporting member organisations to upskill their volunteers and boundaries are an important part of any volunteer role. This workshop is free for volunteers to attend remotely with a Zoom link emailed the day before.
