Turning Volunteer Participation Upside Down event


Friday 16 March 2018, Victoria Halls, Helensburgh.


  • Volunteering in Scotland is going down!
  • Public needs are going up!
  • How do we rethink the ways we engage public servants and citizens to achieve shared outcomes?
  • Lets enjoy an opportunity to re-frame the questions and discover fresh ground, and at the same time throw out some old thinking.


As part of the Improvement Service's Leading Practice Conference Programme, join Volunteer Scotland, the Improvement Service, Argyll and Bute Third Sector Interface and Argyll and Bute council on their journey to realise how volunteers and public services can collectively improve outcomes for their communities.
