Passing it on
May saw the national big help out day and the launch of phase 1 of our Anglia awareness and recruitment campaign – Pass it on.
In Anglia a team of volunteers and staff are part of the national growth network who pull together information and data from county growth coordinators, PR advisors, grassroot member experience surveys and external insight to learn, develop best practice and advise other teams in how to best recruit volunteers and young members.
The Anglia Pass It On campaign has been developed using this knowledge and new insights alongside an experienced creative agency, Creativity Unbound.
We know that we can help to raise awareness of Girlguiding to those who have maybe not considered being a volunteer before and we are helped in that by all that our members share of their achievements and experiences on external social media. We hope that this campaign will encourage more people to see themselves as a potential volunteer with an exciting organisation in a rewarding role with young girls and women. Following this we need your help!
The best results for new enquiries who become volunteers is when they answer a need in their own community and we hope that your recruitment support pack will help you do just that.
In the pack you will find:
- 3 A4 posters. These have a space to add details of what volunteers are needed in your area for putting up on any community noticeboard.
- 25 A5 leaflets. For use on recruitment stands, community leaflet displays or to challenge members of your unit to give to someone who they think is amazing and should Pass it on.
- 6 cards. Use these as you wish to say thank you to the volunteers who make Girlguiding what it is today.
PR and recruitment stand resources
Following the Girlguiding rebrand we have now provided new PR stand resources for counties throughout Anglia. In some cases county teams have also purchased new gazebos, flags and banners. To access these resources for your own local events contact your county team direct or use the contact page on this website to get the best contact details for your area.
