We are pleased to announce our bi-lingual system for WCVA is very close to becoming live for volunteers. The new system will provide an integrated platform for volunteers, volunteer centres and opportunity providers to communicate and manage opportunities.
Already the system is being populated with opportunities on a temporary domain so that when the system becomes available for volunteers in June they will have plenty of exciting options to chose from. The system will be integrated on the same pre-existing volunteering all-Wales database previously used: www.volunteering-wales.net .
Once a volunteer has followed the simple five-stage sign-up form, volunteers are able to start searching for opportunities straight away. These opportunities can be searched for by keywords, distance and interests. Volunteers can also track their progress and development; as they are able to log hours, track opportunities joined and receive incentives through digital badges. Opportunities can also be shared on social media channels such as Twitter, helping to further amplify volunteer engagement.
Organisations have access to a range volunteer management tools including reports, rotas and events planning, log hours on the behalf of volunteers and communication features. These tools help to reduce time spent on administrative tasks, so organisations can focus on supporting volunteers and identifying new opportunities.
Commenting on the use of the TeamKinetic Fiona Lidell, WCVA Volunteering Development Manager, said: ‘We are pleased to be able to offer a user-friendly and efficient platform to encourage and support volunteering in Wales. At the same time, we recognise that not everyone wants, or is comfortable with digital systems. That is why we will continue to offer a parallel face to face service through local volunteer centres’.
