After the first one of your sessions, three or four people asked to have you back again. Everyone who I have spoken to on the project has said that they like your style of delivery.  Your training is giving the project a good identity, as people are enjoying it and the training is the strongest part of the project.” Yvonne – Strengthening Volunteering Project

I worked with Rebecca at the Hornbeam Centre and on various community projects and she is a woman of many talents! She has an ability to cut through the muddle and bring innovate solutions to small and medium groups, with humour and clarity.  She’s an excellent trainer and hugely experienced in volunteer management but she’s also helped me in the past with my online organising and thinking through projects strategically as well as getting her hands dirty and doing the nuts and bolts.

I called Rebecca with a volunteer role enquiry and she was so incredibly helpful – and more to the point willing to be helpful. She explained to me about the problems with expenses and paid vs voluntary roles, and what we could legitimately claim as expenses for a voluntee.  She told me what to be wary of in terms of tax and role-specific expenses. Thank you Rebecca and thank you VAI for running this course – we are really focusing on best practice as a result.  Rachel Wolff, The Manna

Both courses were informative and interactive. I had no problem logging into the session and Rebecca explained how to make comments or ask questions. I would definitely use this method of training in the future. Sarah Wright, MS UK
