On Monday evening I was at the St Thomas Centre in Manchester – the Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisations – for the launch of our Volunteering in the Arts toolkit. The toolkit, for arts organisations working with volunteers, was developed by Voluntary Arts England with Volunteering England and Arts Council England. It combines best practice information, case studies and links to further resources. The toolkit is now available to download from http://www.voluntaryarts.org/2012/09/11/volunteering-in-the-arts-toolkit/. Our launch event on Monday included speeches, discussions and musical performances. It was compered by Shari Vahl from BBC Radio 4’s ‘You and Yours’, and one direct result of the launch was that ‘You and Yours’ dedicated its programme on Thursday to volunteering – you can listen to the programme at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01mk23l.
