It was International Volunteers Day on Wednesday and I was at The MAC in Belfast for the launch of our Arts & Volunteering Toolkit. The toolkit, originally developed by Voluntary Arts England and Volunteering England, was adapted for use in Northern Ireland by Voluntary Arts Ireland and Volunteer Now. Wendy Osborne from Volunteer Now said all research shows that where volunteers are well managed there is greater impact. She hoped that the toolkit will be used by arts organisations across Northern Ireland to improve their volunteer management. Nick Livingstone from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland congratulated Voluntary Arts Ireland and its partners on developing the toolkit and said that its launch in the run up to Derry UK City of Culture 2013 could not be more timely.
